Fall 2022 Welcome Week

August 25th through September 10, 2022

Welcome Week is your next step (after attending New Student Orientation) in your transition to Kutztown University. 

WELCOME WEEK 
  • Plan. Welcome Week takes place directly before fall classes begin. Over move-in weekend (August 27 and 28) there are a series of required freshmen events.
  • Community. You will meet fellow new students, many of our KU staff and learn more about the year ahead.
  • Navigate. Welcome Week will help you feel more comfortable as you start your experience at KU and begin classes, not to mention it is a lot of fun! We know that students who attend Welcome Week are more confident when they start classes because they have had time to meet friends, navigate campus and get settled.
  • Tradition. You will get to participate in several key campus traditions including Convocation and more!
