Incoming Students

Welcome to Luther Seminary!

We are eager to greet you and welcome you to this community of learning and growth as you prepare for the vocation to which God is calling you.

Orientation 2017: Tuesday, Aug. 29 - Thursday, Aug. 31


This Orientation is focused on our residential and commuter students. However, students in the Distributed Learning (DL) program are welcome to join us if your schedule and finances permit. Short-term housing is available in Stub Hall. Please note, DL students will also have an orientation during your first on-campus intensive in January. 

We know it is not always possible for some students to come to campus for Orientation. Yet we recognize how important peer support is to a strong seminary experience and hope you will be able to make arrangements to join us for some of the time.

Let us know if you have any questions- we are eager to get to know you and support you through your studies at Luther. We look forward to seeing you in August!
