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 gets 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. We seek to provide an atmosphere where you are cared for - where your best interests   ̶  academic, physical, and social   ̶  are taken to heart. We are Wayland!



Koinonia 2020 will happen on August 8th & 9th, 2020. Dorm move-in begins at 8:00 am Saturday, August 8th. The Koinonia schedule will be posted soon.

Our Fall 2020 academic year will look a little different than usual this year. In order to help keep everyone safe and provide the best possible experience this Fall, we've moved up the start of school and won't return to campus after Thanksgiving.
