Our Mission

The Office of First-Year Programs embraces a student-centered, holistic approach to student success through courses and programs that support the academic achievement and co-curricular engagement of first-year students creating a foundation for life-long learning.

Moving Freshmen Forward

Northern Kentucky University freshman students have the opportunity to experience their first college year in an environment that promotes active learning, collaboration and personal development through these programs:

  • University 101: Orientation to College & Beyond
  • Learning Communities
  • Book Connection
  • Alpha Lambda Delta

By collaborating with other academic and student development offices and community agencies, First-Year Programs offers these experiences to any freshman, regardless of their academic major or interests.
