Join alumnae/i for a pizza and wine reception in Derham Hall before welcoming new Katies at a candle-lighting ceremony in the Chapel. This event is the culmination of the student orientation program, and includes a fun video of orientation activities. At the end, help hand out gifts to our new students. This is a great way to meet the next generation of Katies!
St. Kate's students interview alumnae/i about "composing a life" as part of the introductory core curriculum course entitled The Reflective Woman, taken by all first-year students. Interview questions will vary, depending on the student you are paired with. Don't worry, there's nothing you need to do to prepare for the interview, just be willing to talk about your life's journey with a Katie.
Fall 2017 interview dates are September 25, 26 and 30.
Citizen Katie Day is a volunteer blitz with students, alumnae/i, faculty and staff working side by side at nonprofit organizations around the Twin Cities and in alumnae/i chapters across the country. Join us on October 14, 2017!
Details about nonprofit work sites will be coming in late summer 2017. Registration will open on Monday, September 11.
