Blue & Gold Welcome

Each fall, the First Year Program hosts Blue & Gold Welcome as a coordinated effort to welcome incoming students and families to UNK! For first time freshmen and transfer students, Blue & Gold welcome is your opportunity to connect with classmates, learn about campus, and discover UNK! Required activities take place the weekend prior to classes starting, and optional Blue & Gold Welcome events take place for several weeks following your first day at UNK!

BGW Schedule

For the 2020-2021 school year, Blue & Gold Welcome will begin Friday, August 21st with move-in and required activities conclude on Sunday, August 23rd. Check back here as the full schedule becomes available. We'll also have a schedule of the Offices Open during the weekend and of Sunday's Religious Opportunities.

Loper Leaders

Over 125 upperclass students volunteer their time to lead incoming students through Blue & Gold Welcome activities. That's the UNK community you'll be joining!
