Multicultural Overnight Recruitment Experience (MORE) Program

The MORE Program is an opportunity for multicultural students who have been admitted to Kutztown University to experience all of the great things KU has to offer.


During the MORE program, you will meet other incoming students and interact with current students.  This helps to build a sense of community and a feeling of comfort when you arrive on campus at the start of the Fall semester.  You'll already know people on day one!

You will also:

  • Learn to navigate the campus
  • Sit in on a class
  • Try the food
  • Hang out at the Rec Center
  • Attend campus events 
2024 Program Dates Will be Announced Soon!

As a participant in the MORE Program, you will:

  • Interact with student service offices on campus to help plan for your success as a KU student
  • Meet current students
  • Participate in fun and interactive events that are designed to help you become familiar with KU
  • Stay overnight in accommodations provided by KU, and dine on campus in our South Dining Hall

  • What to expect and what to bring


    A staff representative will be on call 24 hours a day. Public Safety can also be reached at 610-683-4002 (Emergencies: 610-683-4001). All hosts have been selected by KU staff as ambassadors of the university. They have extensive knowledge of all that KU has to offer and will be able to answer most questions that the student may have. They have had training specific to this program and have completed/submitted all required clearances. Roommates of hosts have also been made aware of the program and are required to sign an agreement to ensure that your student feels welcomed.

    What to bring to campus:

    One day's worth of clothes
    Toiletries (including your toothbrush!)
    Phone charger
    Photo identification (school ID, driver's license, passport)
    Any prescription medications you take on a regular basis
    Notebook and pen/pencil to take notes on your experiences
    Special Note: The university will not be responsible for replacing lost or damaged personal items. Please do not bring any expensive electronics, jewelry or other valuable personal items.

  • Accomodations


    You will stay in our campus-affiliated hotel, Hampton Inn - Kutztown, with one other MORE student participant.  The Hampton Inn - Kutztown is located .5 miles from campus.  Transportation between Kutztown University and the Hampton Inn - Kutztown will be provided throughout the duration of the MORE program.


    You will be given a meal pass that will allow you to access KU dining facilities for the duration of your experience.  If you would like to purchase coffee or a snack from one of the dining facilities on/off campus that are not included with your meal pass or something from the retail stores on campus, you can plan to bring money for these purposes.
