Past Retreat Coordinator Nathan Schulte (2011-2012) described his experience:

“Being the Retreat Coordinator and Programs Associate has been a wonderful opportunity for multiple reasons. First and foremost it has opened my mind to the fraternity at large. Being able to recognize that Sinfonia is a national movement has led to my growth as person and as a Sinfonian. Secondly, the experience that I have gained from meeting other Sinfonians as they visit Lyrecrest has been invaluable. This position has given me the opportunity to learn the inner workings of the Fraternity and then pass on what I have learned to other members. Sharing our experiences and stories in a group setting in the confines of the clubroom, has proven to be an unlimited source of knowledge and growth for all members participating, including myself. This position has showed me the strength of the fraternity and given me a glimpse into the depth of our brotherhood that I otherwise may not have had.”
