What is passport Week?

Passport Week is the name we ascribe to the orientation program for new students at HPU. It can be used interchangeably with NSO, Orientation, etc, and occurs during the week before classes begin.

Passport Week 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.


Something for families too!

Passport Week isn't just for students. We know that parents and families also go through a transition as well, which is why we provide a Family Orientation schedule alongside the student schedule. Check the links to the left for more information!
