Jayhawk Jumpstart extends the conversation started at orientation about how to thrive as part of the KU community. This program, required for all new KU students, focuses on individual and community wellbeing. Students participate in important conversations about social justice, personal safety and community expectations, and health and wellness.  Jayhawk Jumpstart helps students to meet one another and to reflect on those experiences that make us stronger as a community. Students must bring their KUID to this event in order to track attendance.
