EIU New Student and Family Programs

 Panther Pals

We are monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and be following the set guidelines to ensure the safety for returning students, staff, new students and their families. As long as it is safe to proceed, volunteer forms will be available early April 2021.

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 Prowl 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 18, 2021. 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 and attend the New Student & Family Picnic on Thursday, August 19, 2021

  • Recruit and encourage new students to attend Prowl events.
