The New Student Orientation program at Kennesaw State University is the first step in ensuring that new undergraduate students have a successful transition and integration into college life. The program promotes discussion among parents, new students, continuing students, and faculty and staff on the expectations and perceptions of the campus community.
By attending orientation, students will:
Connect with university faculty, staff and other KSU students
Complete a class schedule in their chosen major
Attend an academic advising session
Acquire more knowledge about student support services, the Division of Student Affairs, and the KSU academic experience
Gain a better understanding of the personal and financial responsibilities of attending college
Reduce anxiety about the transition to college life
Understand the necessity of students taking ownership and academic responsibility in their educational process
Your transition to Kennesaw State is a process and incorporates many great programs and events. New Student Orientation occurs during the summer, before the fall semester begins — it all starts here!
