Welcome Weekend

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!
