Lifetime memories start at this five-day program preceding the first week of the fall semester. The journey for freshmen and transfer students begins by developing close relationships with fellow students, faculty and staff.

Plenty of activities keep students busy learning about each other and ACU's traditions, school spirit and educational opportunities. The candlelight devotional on opening night creates a lasting bond among the new class and upperclassmen.

Students engage in a variety of small and large group activities such as devotionals, service projects, games, intramural sports, and meetings with Cornerstone classmates or fellow transfer students. 

Remember that all new students are required to attend one of our Passport Sessions.
