The advancement office sponsors several special events each year:
Civil War Staff Ride—May 15-18, 2013. This interactive Civil War history adventure is based on a military leadership model called the staff ride. Rather than a simple tour, the staff ride allows you to participate in the unfolding of history. You’ll see the battle through the eyes of the participants as you walk in their footsteps across the battlefields of Wilson’s Creek, Missouri, and Pea Ridge, Arkansas.
Parents Weekend—Parents Weekend (October 19 and 20, 2012) offers the families of students the opportunity to get acquainted with the campus, meet professors and enjoy recreational activities together. Each fall about 1,000 guests take advantage of this opportunity to attend a music festival, theater production, sporting events, classes, and enjoy special meals with their Dordt College students. Watch for the schedule in August at www.dordt.edu/events/parents_weekend
Day of Encouragement—an annual day-long event in February designed to inspire, encourage, and equip God's people for ministry.
Dordt Discovery Days—a great combination of learning and fun at the end of June for students entering 7th, 8th, or 9th grade. Each Discovery Days week offers more than 20 courses for youth with a wide range of interests, including engineering, art, drama, music and sports. This summer's date: June 24-28, 2013.
