2022 College Autism Kutztown Experience

Join us for the College Autism Kutztown Experience (CAKE) on July 8, 2022!

Open to upcoming high school juniors and seniors and incoming college freshmen, this event will give you a good idea of what it is like to be a student at Kutztown University with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Experience a college lecture and a science lab activity, eat lunch in a dining hall, and see what walking across a campus feels like. You'll also hear from the Student Success Center about their resources, the Student Involvement Center on the best ways to get involved, and from My Place / staff on college accommodations and the My Place Program!

Come out for an exciting day and find out just how great it is to be a Golden Bear!
