Blue & Gold Welcome
Prior to the beginning of classes, first year students are required to participate in a schedule of interesting and informative events that will assist their transition into student life at the University. Events and presentations will help students to find a sense of belongingness and Loper pride as well as academic independence at UNK. Presenters throughout Blue Gold Welcome include UNK staff and faculty, thus allowing students to not only meet the people who will be assisting them with a successful university experience, but who will also be equipping them with the tools necessary to flourish. Additional information can be obtained by calling the First Year Program at (308) 865-8291, or by going to the First Year Program or Welcome website, www.unk.edu/welcome, or www.unk.edu/firstyear.
