CONNECTIONS: Freshman Program


What is CONNECTIONS Orientation?

CONNECTIONS Orientation is designed to help you get adjusted to college life, answer your questions and prepare for the exciting challenges that await you at Kutztown University! When you come to Orientation, you will meet other first-year students, become familiar with the KU campus; gain an understanding of academic and other student support services offered; receive your fall class schedule and learn about academic expectations.

Each year, we prepare a new student guidebook. We will review some aspects of this with you at new student orientation.


Remember to take the Math Placement and Foreign Language Placement assessments before coming to orientation.

The first-time freshmen orientation program will begin with check-in starting at  8:15 AM and end at approximately 4:00 PM. Students are required to attend the entire day of orientation.
