Join Ascent 2022


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 7-9, with events that span those three days.


Save the Date

In order to fully participate in Ascent, you should plan to join the kick-off event on April 7. The April Ascent schedule will be released in the coming weeks.

Preview Ascent

You will get to experience a taste of student life, learn more about academics, including a class on Forum, understand career and talent development resources, hear from alumni and current students and be able to ask questions from faculty and staff. We will be offering events at multiple times and on varying days during the weekend to account for time zones 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 in order to make the most of this opportunity and meet your classmates.

Learn about academics and student life at Minerva through experiential learning activities, a class on the Forum, and discussions with the leadership team and faculty.
Engage with current students and your future classmates during digital communal meals, informal and formal virtual gatherings, and pop-up events that celebrate and introduce you to the meaning of community at Minerva.
Explore one of Minerva’s rotation cities through an immersive online experience, take a tour of the San Francisco residence hall, and understand the ways that your learning opportunities will extend beyond the classroom.
Family Members

We highly encourage family participation during Ascent to learn more about Minerva’s academics and student life. There will be opportunities to speak with staff, faculty, and current students to help you and your student better prepare. A special schedule for family members will be released shortly.
