First, let me congratulate you on your acceptance to Ashland University (Ashland University). I am writing you today to tell you about an exciting program that will take place at Ashland University this fall for incoming minority students. On Thursday August 19th, the Office of Minority Student Services (MSS) will host its annual Pathways Pre-Orientation Workshop. This workshop will allow students to move in one day early, meet other students on campus, and become acclimated to the Ashland University campus. This FREE program will also focus on the social and cultural issues which students of color frequently navigate.
