What will I do at Ya-A-Te Leadership Retreat?

You will be introduced to the resources needed to be a successful student leader at Tyler Junior College. You will meet new friends, learn TJC traditions, and discover how to get involved on campus. In addition, you will play tribal games, enjoy nightly activities, and have free time to explore the facility.
