The majority of the faculty ventured off to attend a retreat at The Artesian Lakes in Cleveland, TX over the weekend of November 15, 2019. It was enjoyed by all, but it was truly a packed agenda to get ideas, suggestions, and strategies out in the open. It was very informative, well organized and helped highlight the challenges our department will be facing in the future. Everyone appreciated interacting with other faculty that they usually don’t get an opportunity to meet with. Tall tales were shared by the campfire and admired by all.
