Hey, Fall Class of 2020!  Save the Date
First Year Students at the Pep Rally held during Launch Week

All new first-year students (commuter and on-campus residential) are required to attend Fall Semester Launch programs August 20-23.  This is the second part of your Orientation to UIS. We have a number of events scheduled that Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday before classes start to help you become a more effective student, get acclimated to campus, meet your classmates, and have fun before classes start on Monday, August 26!
