RU's Selu Conservancy is an impressive retreat/meeting center and classroom facility that offers 380 acres of natural beauty and charm.  Located just seven miles from campus, it’s an “extended classroom” with its 4,000 square-foot modern facility equipped with meeting rooms and an observatory.  Special events and weddings also take place at Selu, using either the multi-purpose "Barn" facility or the Selu Retreat Center.  Imagine your wedding photographs with the Blue Ridge Mountains in the background!
