How2ESU Programs for New Hornets

College + Campus Engagement + Degree = Employability


You may think the degree is all you need to succeed upon graduation, but the truth is, your engagement in campus life is just as important!

Experiences in your first semester on campus have the greatest impact on your college success. That's why we created How2ESU, to help you succeed.

We're going to give you the skills and resources to have an outstanding first year at Emporia State. As a Hornet you will have access to resources that will help you before, during and after college.  At ESU we have the secret sauce that will help you get results as a student, and as a graduate!

Be sure to follow @how2esu on Instagram to stay up to date on all the opportunities provided when you are a student at ESU!
