FIRST WEEK (orientation)

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.

Now is the time to make your plans to join us for new student orientation called “First Week” which will take place August 24-28, 2014. You can sign up to join us for the week giving us all the pertinent information we need to prepare for your time with us (including ordering food!) Sign up using this google doc (link) and make sure you are signed into your Luther Seminary account to make this form work smoothly.

Attached to this email you’ll find a basic schedule for our time together during the week. We look forward to the opportunity to explore all the aspects of the Wholeness Wheel and to whet your appetite for the ways you can remain a healthy leader while in seminary. A detailed schedule will be available during registration on August 25.

Students in the Distributed Learning program are welcome to join us for First Week if your schedule and finances permit.  Short term housing is available in Stub Hall.  Click here for information on reserving for a spot in Stub Hall.

We know it is not always possible for distributed or commuter students to come to campus for the whole week.  Some of the sessions will be available via live streaming so you can tune in from wherever you are.  They will also be archived for later viewing.  We know how important peer support is to a strong seminary experience and hope you will be able to come for the week to begin developing these relationships.

Let us know if you have any questions- we are eager to get to know you and support you through your studies at Luther. Look forward to seeing you on August 24.
