Holistic Student Engagement

Learn. Think. Become Program

The LEARN. THINK. BECOME. Program targets first year students to better prepare and familiarize them with all the tools available for them at AUK, in addition to facilitating their integration into life at AUK, and building a sense of belonging to the Wolfpack Community.

Part 1: “LEARN”:
Student Life delivers the students with presentations that educate them on their rights and responsibilities as students, guide them through the University Codes and adjudication processes, and provide them with an overview of clubs, organizations and sports, inclusive of information on joining them.

Part 2: “THINK”:
Teamwork, Health, Identity, Nutrition, Knowledge
