Going to college can be just as much of an adjustment for the family as it is for the student. Because of this, there is a special CONNECTIONS Program for family members of new freshmen students.
This program gives family members the opportunity to become comfortable with:
- Their student's new home
- The people and offices their student will be interacting with on a daily basis
This optional, one-day program is held fifteen times in June. Since the family program is held completely independent of the student program, attendees are not limited to choosing the same date as their sons or daughters, and may choose the date that best fits their schedule.
Attendance requires a $25 nonrefundable fee per person. Families can register online beginning March 2014 through the student's MyKU account.
Due to the topics covered, the program is intended for a mature audience.
