Wildcat Warm-up is an opportunity for new students to spend three days and two nights at K-State establishing connections to current students, faculty and staff as well as learning student success strategies and K-State traditions. This is an optional program that is in addition to the orientation and enrollment programs. The program is aimed at student retention. It will give new students entering K-State in fall 2014 a head start by meeting other freshmen, learning K-State traditions, getting involved in campus organizations and gaining a sense of the Wildcat spirit. Wildcat Warm-up is scheduled for June 7-9, June 14-16 and June 21-23. This year is the ninth year for the program and is the first year three sessions will be offered.
