Six Week Series

 

Your first few weeks at ESU are an exciting, and sometimes challenging, time. You're making new friends, trying to navigate your way around a new campus, and learning what it takes to do college-level academic work at Emporia State. The Six Week Series is designed to provide you with additional resources and connection opportunities beyond Hornet Orientation.

Each of the first six weeks of fall has a different theme. Throughout each week, we will highlight campus and community events, offer resources, and provide tips for college success related to the week's theme.

The fall 2014 Six Week Series schedule will be posted here in late summer. Check out the fall 2013 schedule below to get an idea of the activities and events we offer!
