Pre-Orientation Programs (August 2021, before Turning Titan):

Orientation Services is proud to partner with departments across the IWU campus to facilitate additional orientation programs designed to engage specific student populations in meaningful discussions and build early connections. Students participating in Pre-Orientation programs move-in a few days before Turning Titan (Fall Orientation). These pre-orientation programs facilitate student engagement and learning to develop specific skills and introduce students to relevant resources at IWU. Check out the pre-orientation programs page for more information. We hope you are able to join us in one of these exciting programs!

Turning Titan (Fall 2021):

A four-day event at the beginning of fall semester where IWU students begin building their community on campus, become acquainted with university resources and services, meet with their first-year advisors, and engage with Titan Orientation Leaders.
