New student orientation at UNI

New student orientation at the University of Northern Iowa is the start of a whole new chapter in a student's life. The two days incoming students and their families spend on campus is a sneak preview of college life and a time to make new friends -- and it's been in full swing since the start of June.

UNI orientation staff members have spent weeks greeting fresh faces and making sure each and every student has the time of their lives.

Orientation at a glance:
-  Meet with an academic adviser
-  Register for classes
-  Become familiar with campus
-  Get your student ID picture taken
-  Consult a financial adviser
-  Check out the Student Involvement and Student Services Fair

Orientation is so much more than just checking items off a list. It's a time where students can connect with UNI faculty and staff, have a little fun in the state of the art Wellness & Recreation Center, spend the evening at Pantherpalooza, and most importantly, start a new chapter in their lives as a Panther.

The UNI campus community eagerly awaits the arrival of new students in August when they officially join the Panther family and launch the next chapter in their lives.
