August Orientation

Hey, Fall Class of 2021!  Save the Date
First Year Students at the Pep Rally held during Launch Week

All first-year students (commuter and living on-campus) are required to attend August Welcome programs. This is the second part of your orientation to UIS. Recent assessment of the August Welcome program has found that students that participate in all sessions have greater academic success and are more likely to return to UIS in their second year than students that miss/skip sessions.

We are working to create programming to help you become a more effective student, get acclimated to campus, meet your classmates, and have fun before classes start on Friday, August 20!
