Application & Experience Timeline

Eligibility

No prior experience with D&D is required to participate! Although applications are open to everyone within UHP, we encourage first- and second-year students to apply, as many of the themes are most applicable to individuals transitioning into a University environment, as well as making sense of their time as a student.
