K-State First offers three different core programs, each designed to help first-year students start their college careers off right. First-Year Seminar courses and learning communities provide new students with small, interactive learning environments, as well as a space to connect with classmates and professors. K-State First is also home for the University's common reading program (KSFB) that connects new students with other members of the K-State and broader Manhattan community through shared conversations and events. To find out more about each program, follow the links on the left side of the page, or head on over to the Getting Started section to find out which programs are right for you!
