Hello UIC Colleagues!

We had a great day for Move-In and Commuter Connection Day! Please feel free to review the Weeks of Welcome website for many programs and events.  Weeks of Welcome (WOW) is a campus-wide series of events designed to welcome both new first-year, transfer and graduate students to UIC, as well as to welcome back returning students. The calendar of events spans the first few weeks from August 23-September 29th.  It provides a variety of options for new students from which they may choose. Programs of personal interest; skills and involvement; social events; and activities planned by academic units, student service departments and student organizations are represented during WOW.
