Orientation and First Year Programs
COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Response
Your health and well-being are the top priorities at NIU and Orientation and First Year Programs. In response to COVID-19, we're adapting our on-campus orientations taking place in April to a non-face-to-face option. If you have any questions about this process, please contact us at email@example.com.
At this time, all Summer orientation dates for June, July and August are still scheduled to be on-campus.
We're excited to welcome you to campus!
The Office of Orientation and First Year Programs welcomes new students and their family members to the NIU community. We also work in partnership to introduce all new undergraduate students to NIU through the creation of environments and programming that help students to attain active learning experiences, opportunities to engage with others who have diverse perspectives and personal and professional growth
We support incoming students throughout their first year at NIU. Our office coordinates orientation, Week of Welcome (WOW) Welcome Days, UNIV, as well as support programs including the First-Year Success Series, Common Read and mentoring.
