Ways to Get Involved
During Orientation, Advisement, and Registration
Our Orientation, Advisement, and Registration 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.
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 Prowl program is an excellent way to interact with new students!
EIU Reads!: Faculty members will host an interactive discussion with incoming freshmen students about their summer reading book.
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 Echarial Gaines (Assistant Director, New Student & Family Programs) at firstname.lastname@example.org or 217-581-6435.
