Turning Titan – Next Steps


Here are a few next-to-last reminders, as Turning Titan is just one week away! You can view a tentative schedule of the week. Check-in will begin at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 19.


In the previous edition of the "Turning Titan Next Steps," an outdated link was provided for this year's Guidebook mobile app. We apologize for the confusion. You can find the link to the 2014 mobile app here.

International Connections

This new half-day Pre-Orientation Program is intended for the roommates of IWU's incoming international students. The program will take place on Monday, Aug. 18, and will help to engage students in conversations and growth to support their individual success and enhance their roommate relationship. Space may be limited, so register now!
