PASSPORT is a one-day orientation program for new students and adult family members, with five sessions offered throughout the spring and summer. In this program, you'll learn more about college life, meet with an academic advisor to plan your fall course schedule and meet your new classmates.
Looking for an additional orientation for this important transition? Check out Wilderness Orientation, a program that takes you to a variety of wilderness settings. It’s a great way to build new relationships, learn important skills and reflect on your place in God's big world.
Your adult family member(s) are welcome to come too. Please note the program is designed for adults. Younger family members are welcome to accompany parents, but we are unable to provide programming for them. If you register siblings to attend, please note they will be attending the parent portion of PASSPORT.
