Join current and prospective students for Ascent, Minerva’s admitted students event. This newly imagined virtual experience will give you an authentic sense of life at Minerva, offering a multitude of interactive opportunities to engage with your peers, meet staff and faculty, and take part in activities that show you what your four years at Minerva will look like. Ascent will be taking place over the course of April 8-11, with events that span those four days.
In order to fully participate in Ascent, you should plan to join the kick-off and closing events on Thursday, April 8, and Sunday, April 11, respectively. During the events, you will be paired in a small group of other admits, with two current students as your leaders, helping you navigate the rest of the offerings. If you are concerned about the schedule, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will get to choose your own journey, as you attend classes on Forum, take part in student club gatherings, and have meetings and Q&As with staff and faculty. We will be offering events at multiple times and on varying days during the week to account for timezones and school schedules. We want you to be able to attend as many programs as possible during the week, but understand that other aspects of your life might take precedent. We ask that you plan to participate in as many sessions as your schedule allows to make the most of this opportunity and meet your classmates.
We highly encourage family participation during Ascent. Family members are invited to join a series of session on Saturday, April 10. These will include overviews of Minerva's academics, student life, and professional development and opportunities to talk with staff, faculty, alumni, and current students—having their questions about Minerva life fully answered.
