Closer Look

Experiential Learning Activity (ELA)

This for students only.

All students will have the opportunity to participate in an experiential learning activity and/or a seminar focused activity with your fellow classmates. No guests will be able to participate in the session.

In July 2008, we created an experiential learning activity for students coming through orientation as new students to the University. During orientation, we focus on providing our students with tools and insight to empower transformational learning. We are creating transitional experiences during critical transition points in students’ academic progress. The second experience will be at the mid-point in your educational experience; the third will be at graduation.

We have four primary outcomes for the day:

  • To have new students feel welcome and a part of the LIFE community
  • To create bonds between the new students and the faculty, administration and staff
  • To feel a sense of support from the LIFE community
  • Feel the unique qualities that differentiate LIFE

A vital component of your university experience is creating new connections.

Life University is a warm, welcoming community of individuals who care about each other and want to see each other succeed in their chosen paths. You will find that the individuals you meet at orientation will be part of your educational experience for the next several years.


The final component of orientation is the opportunity to receive one-on-one advising and course registration. During the orientation program, you will meet with a University Advisor assigned specifically to you. The University Advisors are dedicated to working with you to plan a challenging and rewarding academic experience aimed at maximizing your potential here at Life University. University Advisors are also a great resource for all things related to your experiences on campus.
