The K Life

Ours is a campus life for students – planned by students. In addition to our residence hall entertainment programs, theatrical performances, and movie series, campus events include:
  • The "Day of Gracious Living," when students are excused from class for a day
  • K Idol, our annual talent show
  • Homecoming Week, including pumpkin painting and pep rallies
  • Spring Fling, when students gather on the Quad to celebrate with activities and contests

Residential Life

First-year students live in one of six residence halls. Second-year students may choose to live in a residence hall in one of our seven Living Learning Houses. All are positive, inclusive communities, with comfortably furnished rooms and gathering spaces, plus a variety of entertaining programs, including:
  • movie marathons and video game tournaments
  • guest speakers and group discussions
  • poetry nights and cultural festivals
  • barbecues and international food parties
  • outdoor activities and dances
