January Term

January Term at Luther College alters the pace of the academic year. It's a time to focus, explore, and try new things.

On campus, it's not as busy as fall and spring, which allows time to think, reflect, and make connections. Off campus, it's a chance to gain experience, test new skills, or go somewhere you've never dreamed of and immerse yourself in a unique culture.
