On May 4th HSU members escaped from Davis to South Lake Tahoe! The retreat offered them a private house that accomodated all 25 with delicious food by Chef Michelle and Chef Hue, an indoor spa, sauna and three stories of space to hang out. It was also a first timer for many to visit Nevada and see the great Lake Tahoe. Not only did the Spring Retreat give everyone a great time, but gave them all new friends for the college future.
