We hope to connect with our campers face-to-face during Privateer Camp! However, due to the uncertainty of the current times, we are preparing for the possibility of needing virtual alternatives. Please check back for more information as we get closer to August.
During this retreat, incoming students learn about the wide range of involvement activities and resources that the university offers. Most importantly, incoming students will learn key strategies on how to enhance their leadership skills and successfully transition into the college environment. This three-day retreat will be packed with ice breakers, team-building activities, leadership sessions focusing on UNO traditions, campus resources, leadership styles, diversity, cultural competency, and the college transition, all led by UNO student staff also known as "Krewe Leaders."
Privateer Camp recognizes that all students should have an equal opportunity to participate in these programs and the staff will work with students who may require special accommodations, including those students with concerns about their gender identity. If you require special accommodations and are comfortable sharing that information, please do so on your registration form. If you would like to have your questions answered or concerns addressed before completing the registration form, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to ask about accommodations you may need to attend the program.
Future Privateers attend fun and interactive sessions where they learn about the history of the University, tips on succeeding in college, and the New Orleans community. These workshops are developed and led by our Krewe Leaders.
