A great college experience starts with a great first year.

K-State First is the University's first-year experience program, our way of helping students establish a great foundation for the rest of their college career.

We offer first-year seminar courses and learning communities designed specifically for first-year students only. We are the home for the University's common reading program, K-State First Book (KSFB), and a one-on-one mentoring program, Guide to Personal Success (GPS), that connects new students with other members of the K-State community. In everything we do, K-State First is deeply committed to academic excellence, community, diversity, and the empowerment of students. Check out our informational brochure and flyer for additional information.

We're also here to help. If you have any questions or suggestions, please let us know at kstatefirst@k-state.edu. We'd love to hear from you.
