Congratulations, you’re officially a Jayhawk! We’ve got a lot planned for you before classes start. You’ll spend your first week at KU getting acquainted with campus, exploring the surrounding area, and meeting other Jayhawks.
Ready? Be here by Aug. 16.
YOUR FIRST CAMPUS ACTIVITIES
Mark your calendars for Aug. 17. That’s when you’ll need to be here for Jayhawk Jumpstart, a required event where you'll meet other students and learn about safety, social justice, and community expectations on campus.
Hawk Week is the official KU welcome week. From Aug. 16 - 26, you’ll get to know life on the Hill with events like Traditions Night, UnionFest, Convocation, and more.
The KU Common Book is an annual initiative to generate a campuswide conversation through a single book. You'll receive a copy at Orientation, read it over the summer, then join us on Aug. 19 for small-group discussions that begin the year's KU Common Book events.
