New Owl Welcome

KSU OrientationDue to COVID-19, New Student Programs will be using a hybrid model for Fall 2021 orientation programming. All new freshman and transfer students are required to attend a Virtual New Student Orientation session. Click here   to sign-up for your session!

After signing-up for the virtual New Student Orientation session, incoming Fall 2021 students will be invited to participate in an optional in-person New Owl Welcome (NOW) event to help get connected to campus.  In addition to taking a campus tour and picking up their Talon One card, students will learn what it’s like to be an Owl by meeting staff and current students, attending a resource fair, and attending break-out sessions designed to share tips on transitioning to college life.   

Invitations to sign up for a NOW event will be sent to your KSU email address within three weeks of your scheduled orientation session. These sessions are operating using social distancing guidelines and will be filled on a first come, first served basis. Students may bring one guest with them to their NOW event. More information, including parking details, a designated check-in time, and more, will be sent within 48 hours of the event. 

 In the event that our office is unable to host a program, we will do our best to update our website to reflect the most accurate information pertaining to the event. If you have any questions, please contact our office at 470-KSU-INFO (470-578-4636) or via email at
