Welcome Weekend

#GoldenBearBeginning

We can't possibly cover all the things students need to know to be successful at KU during Orientation. That is why we have additional programming during move-in weekend and throughout the first week of school to help students with this transition. From Club and Activities Fair, Entertainment, Presentations and more, we'll help you get involved on campus and make connections that will make your first year a success!

  • Welcome Weekend Goals
    • Help students feel welcomed on campus.
    • Connect students with the resources and opportunities on campus.
    • Help first year students to meet/interact with other first-year students, administration, faculty members, and upper-class students.
  • Welcome Weekend Learning Outcomes

    After participating in Welcome Weekend, first year students will be able to:

    • identify who they can go to for help/support in their residence hall

    • understand how to navigate campus

    • identify one or more hazards of binge drinking

    • learn more about bystander intervention, consent education, and survivor support

    • understand more about their academic college and some of the many opportunities
