Pre-Orientation Programs

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-oreintation programs facilitate student engagement and learning to develop specific skills and introduce students to relevant resources at IWU. We hope you are able to join us in one of these exciting programs!

IMPACT : (August 2021, before Turning Titan)

IMPACT (Influencing and Maximizing Positive Academic and Campus Transitions) is an optional orientation program and is geared towards multicultural students. The goal of IMPACT is to assist students with their transition to IWU and provide an opportunity to meet new and returning students. At IMPACT students engage in interactive programming and meet current upperclassmen, faculty, and administrators who help students learn to how identify and handle the challenges typically encountered in their first year.

Registration information for IMPACT will be released early June.
