A message from the Kresge Programs Office

Hello everyone! Welcome to the Kresge community from the Kresge College Programs Office. Part of being in a smaller college community is having the chance to form lasting friendships with your fellow Kresge students and staff. Here at Kresge, we sponsor local events/activities and offer many services in support of an enjoyable and socially active college experience. Our wonderful Orientation Welcome Leaders (during Fall Quarter) and our Programs Assistants (year-round) work so hard in hosting all the amazing events that can be found in our Kresge Programs and Activities Calendars.

Throughout the academic year, there will be many ways to get involved with your community. Given that social interaction is an integral part of daily life at Kresge College, we are sure to host events throughout the year that include: destress events, arts & crafts events, casino nights, game nights, workshops, and more...
