Students who join LAMP will participate in a year-long experience where they will receive mentorship and access to opportunities to ensure academic, social, and personal success. Additionally, LAMP students will join a support system of faculty, staff, students, and community members. LSI is also expanding a network with community partners to have community service and possible job opportunities!
The LAMP is a year long program for first year students. It typically starts with initial contact from the Office of Latino Student Initiatives in August and mentors begin connecting with peers on the first part of the semester. When the LAMP Orientation is offered, it will start a week before school starts during the Early Move In programs.
LAMP students will spend time building community with other LAMP participants, getting to know LAMP mentors, and preparing for a successful first year of college! Students will meet with NKU faculty and staff to learn more about their program of study and learn how to get involved in student organizations.
Students participating in the LAMP Orientation will receive an email with a list of planned activities.
No, LAMP is open to all commuter and residential students.
Detailed schedules will be sent to all participants towards the start of each fall semester.
The days between the end of orientation and when classes begin, students are encouraged to relax, prepare for new student orientation, and get ready for their first day of classes. LAMP students will join all incoming students for the NKU Orientation. ALL students are required to participate in the mandatory orientation for incoming freshmen.
