What is a Spiritual Autobiography Retreat?

Every Fall, students in our Global Gap Year go on a weekend retreat away from the city.  It is a weekend full of storytelling.  We walk through a booklet developed by Dave Meserve titled, ‘7 Stories’.  This retreat tends to be a highlight for each of our students as they learn more about themselves and their fellow gap students.  In this podcast, Dave talks with Luke about how he developed this impactful spiritual autobiography, what it consists of, and how it impacts those who go through it.

If you’d like more information about Dave and his non-profit, Urban Skye, you can check out his website, http://www.urbanskye.org/.

Why So Long to Graduate College?

If I’ve heard it once, I’ve heard it a thousand times.  “Why take a Gap Year?  Doesn’t that just add years to finishing university?

I know it sounds counter-intuitive, but the current research shows that on average, today’s university students take 5-6 years to finish their undergraduate work.  But when compared to Gap Year Students who take 3-4 years, the message couldn’t be louder.

The idea that a Gap Year will add to a student’s tenure at institutional academy is just false.  The facts are there.  Our industry has done the research, and we’ve found some interesting new statistics that will help you decide if a Gap Year is right for you.

Join Luke and Andy on this week’s KIVU Gap Year Podcast, and listen to this new cutting edge research.
