What is Flight?

 FLIGHT is the first-year student initiative developed by the Division of Student Affairs with the support of the Office of the President. The purpose of FLIGHT is to develop a class-year identity program aimed at increasing first-year students' sense of belonging and affinity for KSU, KSU spirit, and ultimately their retention and progression at KSU. Incoming students in 2022 belong to FLIGHT 26 (indicating their potential graduation year of 2026). Our Fall 2023 incoming students will belong to FLIGHT 27, and so on.

Exciting FLIGHT26 opportunities during Fall 2022 include:

  • First-Year Convocation on Sunday, August 14, 2022
  • Weeks of Welcome
  • Service Project
  • Freshman Football Takeover - Saturday, September 24, 2022
  • Homecoming
  • End of Semester Bash
