KickOff 2023

Student Life would like to invite you to start your semester off strong with our annual campus KickOff. Whether you are a new student, returning student, adult learner, or PSEO student, this event day is designed for you to come to campus and get the support you need to start fall semester off right. Ultimately, the goal of KickOff is to introduce you to the campus community through thoughtfully created programs, workshops, and connection opportunities. Our hope is that you leave with the confidence you need to navigate the campus and its resources, along with a stronger sense of community. This is a great opportunity to meet faculty, staff, and fellow students.

Inver Hills students at the KickOff event

During KickOff you will:

  • Connect with faculty and staff on campus
  • Learn about resources and involvement opportunities
  • Meet other Inver Hills students
  • Participate in information sessions about technology, study skills, and more!

KickOff Schedule

The first portion of the day is dedicated to preparing you for classes to begin. You will hear from current students, attend sessions, and connect with other students. The second portion of the program is our Resource Fair and Free Food Truck designed for you to network with faculty and learn about campus resources, support services, and involvement opportunities, while enjoying food from a local food truck. The Resource Fair is a great time to stop by the Campus Bookstore to pick up your books or some Inver Hills gear. We can’t wait to see you there!
