Corps of Discovery 


Nathan Reiff

Corps of Discovery Coordinator

University of Providence’s Freshman Experience

Corps of Discovery isn’t your typical first-year student experience. Explore Montana while getting to know your classmates and building friendships that will support you throughout college and life.

Students meet in the classroom for one hour a week and then meet up outside the classroom on evenings and weekends. That’s when the fun begins. Hiking, rafting, skiing – these are activities you’ll get to experience. You’ll also explore cultural attractions in and around Great Falls, volunteer your time for service projects and participate in retreat weekends to connect with your values and faith. As you push your limits, you’ll become more aware of who you are and who you want to be.
