EIU New Student and Family Programs

 Panther Pals


Panther Pals play a key role in welcoming students to campus with a warm smile and helping hand. This EIU tradition gives you the opportunity to represent the University and help new students and their families move into the residence halls.

Panther Pals will:

  • Return to campus early to prepare for Welcome Weekend Move-in Day

    • Panther Pals may move in to their respective on-campus residence (for no additional charge) early. More details will be given in July.
  • Attend Panther Pal meeting on Wednesday, August 14, 2024. More details will be given in July.
    You will receive your Panther Pal shirt and hall assignment at the meeting. Please note, if you do not attend this meeting, you will not be able to participate as a Panther Pal this year.

  • Help new students during move-in on Thursday, August 15, 2024.

  • Recruit and encourage new students to attend Welcome Weekend events.

Panther Pal applications must be submitted by Monday, July 1st at 11:59.
