Ice breaker or Orientation: a fun and exciting activity that first year students experience during orientation week which enables them to know each other better.

Heartprints Day
in memory of Dr. Princess Awoonor Williams, a cherished member of faculty who had an incredible heart for students. The day is designed to celebrate all members of the community who have touched the lives of someone at Ashesi.

ASC Week:
A week of activities designed to bring students together to celebrate the Ashesi Student Council and student life in general. A pleasantly wacky string of events, ASC week includes a flurry of activities organized by on-campus clubs as well as dressing themes for each day of the week. Crazy Day is always a highlight.
