Location: Buffalo Valley Ranch

2946 Ganzer Road West Denton, Texas 76207

The University Counselors and Advisors Network will hold its 2015 Retreat at Buffalo Valley Event Center on Friday, May 29, 2015. A registration link and details will be emailed to you within a week. The Retreat will begin promptly at 9:00 a.m. with check-in and breakfast beginning at approximately 8:00 a.m. Sessions will conclude at approximately 4:00 p.m. These sessions will focus on the identity of students and advisors, including academic, social, and professional aspects.

To prepare for our activities, please complete the Jung Typology/MBTI based personality inventory at the link below prior to registration. Before clicking on the link to take this free version of the personality inventory, be ready to write down your results AND the percentage next to each letter. For example, if your type is ISTJ, you'll want to record I (90%), S (35%), T (75%), J (10%). The percentages of each letter matter just as much as the 4-letter type. In selecting an answer to each statement, put yourself in the mindset of how you are around people who know you well. 

If you have any questions or concerns about the results or how we intend to use them at the retreat, please contact Lindsey Fields at
