Endeavor Together

Endeavor Together: An Immersive Pre-Orientation Program

August 18-25, 2018

Begin your college experience with new relationships, renewed confidence, and an emerging sense of place.

The Endeavor Together program is designed to bring together small cohorts of incoming first year students in order to share in fellowship and adventure while building community and preparing for college life. Students will spend six days living and adventuring together, within the Luther College area or in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area of the Upper Midwest. All groups are led by two highly trained student leaders. Faculty and staff mentors will connect throughout the week with each group. The Endeavor Together program is designed for students of all backgrounds and with a variety of interests. All incoming first-year students are encouraged to attend.

Sponsored by the Luther College Center for Sustainable Communities and the Center for Equity and Inclusion, the Endeavor Together Program connects people and place to build lasting community that will ease the transition to college life.
