    Hey, Fall Class of 2021! Save the Date

    All first-year/freshmen transfer students (commuter and living on-campus) are required to attend the First-Year Fall Welcome programs August 17, 18, and 19. This is the second part of your orientation to UIS. Recent assessment of our August programming 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!

    See the schedule *subject to change in consideration of COVID-19 mitigation.
