Titan Orientation Leaders.

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.
