Hawk Week 2014 Banner

August 21 - September 1, 2014

Hawk Week is the official welcome week at the University of Kansas. It is designed to help you:

Discover everything that KU has to offer,

Engage with and build connections to faculty, staff and fellow students, and

Belong to your new campus community.

All of the events are free and open to all KU Students, therefore registration is not required. Those living in residence halls will be guided through Hawk Week by assigned Hawk Week Leaders and their Residence Assistants. Hawk Week Leaders will provide you support and guidance throughout Hawk Week and into the first semester.

We encourage all first-year students to attend. Hawk Week will allow you to get to know others, and those connections are invaluable as you start your Jayhawk journey. Additionally, the habits you create during your first couple of weeks on campus set the stage for your semester, and participation in Hawk Week will ensure that you get started on the right foot.
