K-State First

 

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 (KSBN) and a one-on-one mentoring program (GPS) that connects new students with other members of the K-State family. In everything we do, K-State First is deeply committed to academic excellence, community, diversity, and the empowerment of students.


Contact us at kstatefirst@k-state.edu. We'd love to hear from you.
