Students to Attend Early Orientation Day at Mars Hill University

Mars Hill University will welcome about 100 new students for First Year Pre-Orientation on Saturday, June 17, 2017. First Year Pre-Orientation, or FYPO, gives incoming students a chance to get a head-start on their college experience by introducing them to the campus community before the start of their first semester.

Students will meet their First Year Mentors, current Mars Hill students who provide support as new students get acclimated to the college experience. FYPO also gives students an overview of campus life, from the residential living experience to exploring options for on-campus dining. Mars Hill faculty will be available to give students an overview of various academic disciplines and to assist with fine tuning fall semester class scheduled.

FYPO also includes a track for parents and other family members, with sessions on Mars Hill’s academic programs, financial aid opportunities, and student success resources.

Mars Hill University holds four FYPO events during the spring and summer. The last one for 2017 is Saturday, July 15. The fall semester begins August 22. For more information about FYPO or admission to Mars Hill University, contact the admissions office at (828) 689-1201 or email
