Alumni & New Student Picnics

Join us at our annual EIU Alumni and New Student picnic summer series. Help us in greeting the next generation of Panthers during our “Welcome to EIU” picnics. Share useful insight and advice with our 2013 incoming students and their families as they begin this new chapter in their lives. Food and beverages will be provided by the EIU Alumni Association.
