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.
