What you need for the weekend retreat.
Complete orientation and Fusion schedule for Wednesday through Monday.
New Student Orientation begins on the Wednesday evening before classes start for fall quarter, which begins on a Monday. Orientation programs are also offered at the beginning of winter and spring quarters for students who arrive mid-year. Orientation includes presentations from key campus leaders, academic advising, extended office hours so you can get everything squared away, a special orientation program for parents, and Q&A time. The fall quarter orientation also includes the Fusion Retreat and opportunities to mix and mingle.
If you are bringing your student to campus and need a place to stay, see Area Lodging for information.
Fusion is designed to assist first-year students age 19 or younger in the transition to college life. Students meet in small groups weekly throughout the year to identify and clarify values and beliefs which form an essential foundation for success in relationships, academics, and spiritual life.
Fusion also features a fall weekend retreat required for all first-time freshmen age 19 or younger. The retreat is filled with worship, friendship, and fun in the beautiful redwoods of Northern California. Be sure to only bring casual clothing for two days, a warm jacket, comfortable closed-toe shoes for hiking, a flashlight, a sleeping bag for cool nights, pillow, toiletries, a towel, bathing suit, sunscreen, mosquito repellant, a Bible, notebook, a pen, and an adventurous spirit! The retreat takes place at a camp with a skate park, Ropes Course (with 400-foot zip line), climbing wall, BMX track, volleyball court, ping pong, swimming pool, outdoor basketball court, soccer and baseball field. Buses will leave campus on Friday and return to campus on Sunday.
