Congratulations! You are a Golden Eagle!

Welcome to Northeastern Illinois University! We are excited you have selected Northeastern to pursue your undergraduate education. First Year Orientation will familiarize you with the campus, its culture and your new community. You do not want to miss the opportunity to meet your professors, make new friends and pick up some of the Northeastern giveaways.

All students new to Northeastern must attend an orientation day. It's imperative you attend orientation after having taken your placement exams as you will need your scores to register for classes and to meet with your advisor.
