How2ESU: New Student Programs

The E-Experience


The E-Experience is a two day, overnight event that takes place on the Emporia State University campus. You get the opportunity make new friends, get an early introduction to life at Emporia State, and get a jump-start on your college career. At The E-Experience, you will participate in a variety of hands-on activities, allowing you to create connections with other new Hornets.

This is one of our most powerful and popular new student programs. Students who attend The E-Experience feel much more prepared and excited to start school in the fall. Through activities, discussions, and unique experiences led by the E-TEAM, you will learn tips and tricks to navigate your college experience and make the most of your time at Emporia State. You also get to experience a "taste" of life at Emporia State by staying overnight in the residence halls, eating meals in the Hornets Nest, and visiting cool local businesses in the Emporia community.

The E-Experience is FREE to attend, but space is limited to 100 students per session! We will be offering three sessions of The E-Experience in summer 2014.

  • Session 1: July 8-9
  • Session 2: July 10-11
  • Session 3: July 15-16
