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 2021 will happen in August (check back later for exact dates). Dorm move-in begins Friday, August 13th at 9:00 AM. The Koinonia schedule will be posted soon.
