Helping new students feel welcome and part of the K-State family will be the job of 43 students selected to serve in the 2019-2020 orientation programs.
K-State's orientation programs include Orientation and Enrollment and Wildcat Warm-up. These select individuals inform new students about resources, services, activities and facilities available at the university through large- and small-group sessions.
