Community and Inclusion
Whether we are Waving the Wheat, Rock Chalking, or raising our voices, we do it as a community. That includes you, now. KU’s student body and faculty are what make life at the university inspiring and accessible.
Find your group
Hawk Week abounds with events that focus on you finding a community where you feel welcome and comfortable both academically and personally. Events organized by students of color, queer and trans communities, student clubs, and other organizations will show you how to find support and networking that lasts throughout the school year.
Find your inspiration
Want to learn the chants and cheers of the Jayhawk spirit inherited from the past and still inspiring today? Come to Traditions Night at Memorial Stadium. Want access to a bunch of free stuff? Come hang out with the Student Union Association at UnionFest. Hawk Week is where your interests and your imagination intersect.
Find your groove
KU is a place where you can express yourself, and Hawk Week is a prime time to make that happen. The Office of Multicultural Affairs block party is a great event that lights up the night with rhythm and music where you can safely dance and sing your way into a new year full of potential.
