Preview Event: Adventure
Our campus is now open for in-person visits! Schedule yours today.
Please note: The state of Kentucky is currently requiring the use of masks in public. Our Office of Admissions is closely monitoring and following Asbury University’s official COVID-19 Response, and visits will follow recommendations as outlined by our COVID-19 Task Force, the CDC and government officials (if you do not have a mask for your visit, we can provide one for you!). If you are unable to travel, take a look below at our online alternatives for you to still get to know Asbury and for us to get to know you.
Preview Events are a great opportunity for students and parents to visit the campus and get an inside look at what life is like at Asbury. You’ll attend classes, eat in the dining hall, worship in Chapel and stay overnight in one of our residence halls. In addition, you’ll meet our students, interact with professors, explore academic programs and attend informative seminars. Preview Events also include special sessions for parents, like the Financial Aid Seminar. Fall Preview + Adventure is all of the fun and information of a Preview Event, plus an additional night in the Daniel Boone National Forest hiking, exploring, canoeing and sleeping in hammocks. The Adventure component is optional and does cost $20. Students are welcome to attend Fall Preview and not go on the Adventure, but the Adventure cannot be attended except in conjunction with Fall Preview.
- September 5-7, 2019
If you are participating in the Adventure component, you will be heading to Daniel Boone National Forest about 3 p.m. on Friday. Dinner on Friday and breakfast and lunch on Saturday are included. Adventurers will be back to campus around 5 p.m. on Saturday.
What Should I Bring?
If you are staying overnight in a residence hall, bring a sleeping bag, pillow, towel and any necessary toiletries. If you are participating in the Adventure component, make sure to bring comfortable clothes and shoes for hiking.
What Events Are There for Parents?
