Our Orientation program gives incoming students the opportunity to see what EIU has to offer them!
Program folders: Incoming students will receive an informational folder upon check-in at orientation. The materials in this folder come from campus facilities that are geared toward helping students have a successful Orientation. Please contact NSFP if your office is interested in providing materials for the folders.
Panther Fair: Members of the EIU community will set up informational tables for students and their guests during Orientation. Here, students and their guests will have a chance to see what activities and resources are available through miscellaneous departments.
Our Welcome Weekend program is an excellent way to interact with new students!
Transfer Connections: Faculty members from different areas of campus will give a 30 minute presentation on the resources available to transfer students through their department.
Welcome Picnic: Faculty members will have a chance to mingle and have lunch with students who will be entering their colleges.
If you are a member of the Eastern Illinois University family and are looking to assist incoming students by increasing their knowledge about your department or organization, please contact our office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 217-581-6435. New Student & Family Programs would be happy to work with you in many different capacities to spread knowledge to new students.
