Week of Welcome

NIU's Week of Welcome (WOW) program is an extension of orientation and your introduction to Northern Illinois University. Expect a balance of fun and friendly events with exclusive learning experiences just for new Huskies like you.

WOW provides the perfect environment for you to make a solid start in your education at NIU. You'll meet with your academic college, learn about important campus resources, and discover what it means to be part of our pack and celebrate Huskie Pride.

Thanks to those who participated in WOW 2020! We will announce WOW 2021 dates in spring 2021. Any questions? Feel free to contact us directly at orientation@niu.edu. Go Huskies!
