Koinonia - New Student Orientation

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

The weekend filled with games and events designed to gets new students comfortable on campus, and plugged in to life at Wayland.

KOINONIA 2019 took place the weekend of August 16th. This year's theme was 80's Music! K Families were given popular 80's band names, and got to experience a number of 80's themed events.

We want Wayland to be home for all of our students. A place where they can be accepted as they are and be part of a family. We seek to provide an atmosphere where they know they're cared for. That they're best interests  ̶  academic, physical, and social  ̶  are taken to heart.

KOINONIA 2020 will happen in August of 2020. Check back next summer for more details!
