Gearing up for College…

All incoming Scholars attend Honors Orientation from August 15–17, 2017 at Camp Lutherock as part of their first–year Honors Program experience. Throughout the orientation, students have the opportunity to get to know their classmates, upperclassmen, and professors through various levels of outdoor activities. The goal of the orientation is to build meaningful cohort cohesion to enhance students’ transition to college. We highly encourage all Scholars to register and attend Honors Orientation and will work with student–athletes on practice obligations so that they may attend at least part of the program.

    Honors Program Orientation provides an opportunity for a new cohort of students to come together with members of upperclassmen cohorts and faculty in a fun and challenging new environment. This orientation allows incoming students to engage with each other over intellectual conversation, creative activities and outdoor adventure. Camp Lutherock will supply a beautiful backdrop for hikes, cooking competitions, Frisbee games, poetry slams, bouldering, and all the fabulous memories made with peers. As our program grows to incorporate wonderful new minds, Honors Program Orientation will serve to maintain the intellectual and interpersonal connections so characteristic of this program.
