What is Passport Week?

Passport Week is the name we ascribe to the program for first year students during the week prior to classes. It can be used interchangeably with NSO, Orientation, etc. It is the time when students become familiar with the university, the resources we provide, build relationships, learn to navigate the campus, and participate in some really fantastic events on and around the HPU campus.
