Veritas Academy: Faith, Learning, & Making the Most of College

A Pre-College Retreat for Incoming Wash U Freshmen: July 27-30, 2018

Hosted by the Kairos journal of Christian thought at Wash U

Veritas Academy is a three-day residential experience for incoming Wash U freshmen, held July 27-30 on the Washington University Campus in St. Louis. Led by Christian faculty, upperclassmen, alumni, and campus ministers, this experience helps incoming students ask the big questions, design a meaningful college experience, learn practical tips, and build a faith community among peers – all before arriving on campus in the fall. The curriculum draws upon The Veritas Forum’s 25 years of experience engaging faith and inquiry on America’s leading campuses.
