Campus Life

It's a Greek New Semester

At the start of each year, one of the academic buildings on campus is filled with Kean University's Greek organizations for the annual Greek Senate Conference. This year on Friday, Sept. 6, in the North Avenue Academic Building (NAAB), the Greeks went through multiple workshops designed to get them interacting with one another, to teach them how to continue to be good leaders and how to make the rest of the academic year a great one.

A Whole New World

College is the time to explore different aspects of life to find friends and find oneself. One of the pinnacle programs that really brings this sentiment into fruition is the study abroad program at Kean. This program allows individuals to explore different parts of the world, see things from a new perspective and also help students work toward getting their degrees. While being exposed to other cultures and ways of life for either a full year, single semester or an even shorter amount of time with the Travelearn program, students can become more well rounded and make strides toward their education.

Kicking Off the Year Right

On Sept. 6, 2019, the first Friday of the Fall 2019 semester, Kean University kicked the school year off with the Friday Night Football Game Kickoff. A prelude to the first football game of the season, the kickoff was not only an opportunity for the Kean community to come out and support their football team, but also a way for students to get pumped for the beggining of the sports season and the school year. Starting at 4 p.m. and running until 6:30 p.m. in the Harwood Arena, the event appeared to do it's job well. It was attended by many different members of the Kean community who all appeared to be having a wonderful time.

Welcoming the College of Liberal Arts Majors to the New Semester

 This past Tuesday, Sept. 10 at 1:30 p.m., Wilkins Theatre was filled with all of the liberal arts majors as the College of Liberal Arts (CLA) invited them to their second annual convocation. The purpose of this event was to invite the new freshman and transfer students, as well as the returning CLA majors and get them excited for the upcoming semester. This event also allowed students and professors to get to know each other on a more personal level, as well as ensure that the students are supported by the staff from the CLA.
