Base Camp Summer Orientation

Welcome to Anderson University!

Base Camp is an overnight program designed to be the first stop on your Journey as a student at Anderson. Base Camp is designed to prepare you for the upcoming school year by providing answers your academic, campus life and social questions. We chose Base Camp as our theme for summer orientation because we see your college experience as a journey similar to climbing a mountain. Before you start, you need to get acclimated and ready yourself for the task ahead. Base Camp will be a mix of information and fun that we're sure will get you prepared to begin your college experience in the fall.

All new students are required to attend a Base Camp Session. Freshman & Transfer students coming in with 13 or fewer hours are required to attend a Summer Base Camp Session during June. If you are a Transfer student transferring more than 13 hours we have a special August Base Camp Session just for you.

All first-time freshman students and transfer students with less than 13 credit hours are required to attend one of the Base Camp sessions.
