Endeavor Together: An Immersive Pre-Orientation Program

August 19th-26th, 2023

The Endeavor Together program is designed to bring together a small cohort 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 Upper Midwest, including the Driftless Region surrounding Luther College. 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, however, space will be limited for the 2023 program.

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