KW1101 Orientation

Welcome to KWC Freshman Orientation 2014


August 23-26, 2014

 

To get a jump on college life, KWC freshmen report to campus a few days ealier than returning students -- we call this KW1101. You'll get settled into your rooms, laugh at some entertainment, learn about KWC culture and have a ton of fun getting to know a few hundred of your closest friends.

 

You'll be divided into KW1101 groups (each group will have a faculty/staff leader and two student leaders) for many of your activities. On this page, you'll find the KW1101 schedule, info on your summer reading assignment (yeah, you've gotta do a little work -- this is college!) and other resources.

 

We're excited about meeting all of you in a few short weeks. See you on campus!
