Welcome to Kutztown University!

 Historic Kutztown

Your first step to success at Kutztown University starts with New Student Orientation. Orientation helps bridge the gap between your high school or previous college by preparing you for a great first year. By participating in New Student Orientation you will learn your way around campus, have a chance to get acquainted with other new students, and learn about the many programs and opportunities here at KU.  

The CONNECTIONS Orientation Staff encourages you to take full advantage of all that CONNECTIONS Orientation has to offer, including meeting your CONNECTIONS Orientation facilitators and fully participating in all events.  We are excited to welcome you to community, help ease your transition, and show you the many opportunities at KU.
