First-Year Experience

One of our highest values here at Ashland University is community. Togetherness. Fellowship. That's why we're so thrilled to offer Pre-Orientation Retreat programs for first-year students. With these intentionally designed programs, you'll soon be calling Ashland University your home away from home. Your story unfolds in community, and it all starts here!

Pre-Orientation Retreats

Exclusively for first-year students, pre-orientation retreats offer new students the opportunity to get a jump start on their Ashland University experience before Orientation Weekend even begins! Meet new students, have fun, experience something new, and ease the transition to college life by arriving to campus early for a specially designed pre-orientation retreat!

Retreat Dates:  August 18-21, 2018
Fee: $50 refundable deposit billed to your Student Account to hold your reservation. May pay through the Business Office.
