Koinonia Illustrated Pronunciation Graphic

Koinonia  (coin-o-knee-uh) is a freshman welcome event held the weekend before classes start. Students are placed in families, and given "K Parents" that introduce them to Wayland and college life.

The weekend is filled with games and events designed to get new students comfortable on campus and plugged into life at Wayland. We want Wayland to be home for you. A place where you are accepted and you feel part of a family. Koinonia is only the beginning! We are Wayland!

Register here for Koinonia!
