Join Ascent Interactive


Join us for Ascent Interactive, Minerva’s first digital admitted students weekend. In response to the coronavirus and increasing travel restrictions, we have moved our admitted students weekend programming online. These sessions will give you an authentic sense of life at Minerva, opportunities to engage with your future classmates, and time to interact with staff and faculty. Ascent Interactive for the Class of 2024 will be April 17-18 PST.

Review the schedule for the weekend and the sessions that you will be able to attend. We have created three guides in different timezones to help with planning.

Experience Forum by participating in a sample class. Together you will discuss and tackle the global issue of food sustainability and production.
Learn about the unique aspects of academics and student life at Minerva through interactive sessions with members of staff, current students, and alumni.
Introduce yourself to the Minerva community, asking the questions you have and sharing why you are excited to be experiencing Minerva.


Ascent Interactive sessions will run from the afternoon on Friday, April 17 PST to midday on Saturday, April 17 PST. Our intention is to provide as many sessions as possible across multiple time zones to allow for global participation. 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.

Family Members

We highly encourage family participation in Ascent Interactive. Family members are invited to join the majority of sessions and should complete the RSVP process individually if they plan to join from their own device. Non-students will not be able to participate in the class experience on Forum due to strict space limitations to ensure active learning. All sessions will be held in English.
