Registration, Orientation, and Advising Day (ROAD)

Road 2021

Designed for Luther’s first-year students, ROAD is an opportunity for you to meet with your advisor, register for classes, and connect with your future classmates and Luther’s faculty and staff — all in a virtual environment. ROAD is required for all first-year students planning to attend Luther in the fall.
