Set yourself up for success with our annual Kick Off event

Kick Off is an annual event at Inver Hills to welcome students back for a new academic year! Meet Inver faculty, students, and staff, and start the semester off right! Kick Off is designed for both new and returning students. 

Fall Kick Off Schedule

Thursday, August 18 | 9 am-2:00 pm


Kick Off


You will need to be able to use Zoom and students will use D2L. You will need to have a camera and microphone for Zoom sessions.

You will be able to access the meeting links here, in D2L and in the email sent out to you. More information about how to use your Zoom account is available.

In past years we have invited new students to attend, this year ALL students are encouraged to join us and invite family and friends!

Students who have more connections to faculty staff and other students tend to do better in classes. In addition you will learn about the many resources available at Inver Hills.

No, but we recommend it strongly. You can find virtual backgrounds here and instructions on how to use them here.

We are so excited to get to know you!
