CONNECTIONS: Freshman Program
Kutztown University is excited to welcome you to our campus community. Freshman orientation provides students the opportunity to meet other incoming students beginning their first year at Kutztown University. The program, speakers, and activities scheduled for the one-day orientation program will focus on the issues and resources that are most important to new students. Freshman orientation is also a great way to find out how you can become involved on campus and speak to current Kutztown University students, staff and faculty.
