First Year Experience
Whether you are a freshman or a transfer student, college life is an exciting time for building a new community and making a new home. At Vanguard University, our goal is to help you grow spiritually and succeed academically, and help you make lifelong connections.
Vanguard University was founded in 1920 and its campus culture and traditions are rich. For nearly 100 years, a wide variety of events have taken place in campus life—most of them are Vanguard traditions. Here are just a few of our annual traditions:
At the start of each academic year, amidst the moving in, registration, orientation, and meet and greets, the student life department makes sure students dive into as much fun as possible before the school year begins.
Mock Rock is a lip sync and dance battle, where each class performs against each other. The costumes, dancing, and set design will be sure to blow you away.
Woofest is a showcase, where the males of Huntington Hall perform dances, skits, talents, and singing. Their goal is to honor and show appreciation to the women on campus and make them feel wooed.
