First Year Student Events

Be sure to participate in the First Year Program events in order to get the most out of your first year at UNK!

Blue Gold Welcome

The excitement of a new academic semester is celebrated throughout UNK and the Kearney community as we welcome new students into the UNK family through Blue & Gold Welcome . Whether you are new to the college experience or new to the UNK campus, Blue and Gold Welcome will provide you with the information you need to make your college transition and experience a successful one.

We are lucky in First Year Programs to have over 130 student volunteers that will help guide you through your first weekend on campus.

Loper Leaders

As a new student, there are many things to do to prepare for your time at UNK, so make sure to check-out & take the First Year Summit to help you become familiar with the UNK campus. Whether you are new to the college experience or new to the UNK campus, Blue and Gold Welcome will provide you information you need to make your college transition and experience a successful one.

Participate, discover, and take advantage of all UNK has to offer.

Contact the First Year Program office at 308-865-8291 or email at firstyear@unk.edu with any questions about Blue & Gold Welcome.

Join us for our 2nd annual, January Jamboree (Jan Jam for short!).  Jan Jam is an official “Welcome” to those new students arriving at UNK, and an official “Welcome Back!” to our returning students.  Enjoy several weeks of events hosted by different UNK organizations to help you get to know your fellow students, your campus and your community!
