Adult Welcome Day
Going back to school after five, 10 or even 30 years can be a little intimidating: Will I remember how to study? Where is the library? Who can help me get through all this? Donít worry, Kirkwood is here to help you with those questions and more. 

The New Adult Welcome event, held before the start of each semester, brings new, registered adult students together to navigate the Kirkwood experience. Staff are on hand to answer your questions and introduce you to the resources and people who can help you succeed. Get off to a strong start by networking with other adult learners and tour campus before classes begin.

For more information on the New Adult Welcome event, call the Admission office at 319-398-5517 or 1-800-363-2220, or email us at
