Orientation

Lion’s Roar (orientation)

We look forward to you being a Mars Hill Lion! Lion’s Roar is a multi-day orientation program that all new students participate in prior to the beginning of their first semester at Mars Hill University in August or January. You’ll get acquainted with the campus, find out about opportunities to get involved, meet with your instructor and First Year Mentor for your First Year Seminar class, explore the culinary offerings of Pittman Dining Hall, and learn about other opportunities as a Mars Hill student.

The next orientation is scheduled for January 28-29, 2022.

Note: All events are required for incoming new students, commuter, Early College, and transfer students. Students enrolled in a FYS111 course are considered “new students.” All incoming students not enrolled in an FYS111 course are considered “transfer students.”
