We believe that orientation programs are the foundation for your success and, therefore, require all new first-year and transfer students with less than 20 credit hours to attend all orientation events.

If an emergency or situation arises and you are unable to attend, you must contact the office of Student Administrative Services (815-226-4062) or the Jane Addams Center for Civic Engagement (815-394-5143) immediately.

Throughout Orientation you will:

  • Develop new friendships
  • Participate in a variety of events
  • Connect with other new students
  • Have Fun!
