  • New Student Leadership Program

    New Student Leadership Program

    The New Student Leadership Program (NSLP) is a weekend getaway at an outdoor adventure camp in Charlottesville, VA. New students enjoy the opportunity to get away from campus and connect with other new Lancers. Activities will include a low ropes course, high ropes element, bonding in small and large groups, and singing songs around the campfire. NSLP makes the transition to college life easier as students begin to chart their course as citizen leaders! For more information on the program, dates, and registration process please visit the NSLP website.
