Welcome New IIT Students:

The Academic Day of Excellence on Friday, August 22, 2014, is the first chance students have to meet faculty, staff, and other students in their academic units. All new students are expected to attend.

Academic receptions begin at 8:30 a.m. in the following locations:

  • Armour College of Engineering - Hermann Hall Ballroom
  • College of Architecture - S. R. Crown Hall
  • Lewis College of Human Sciences - MTCC - Pritzker Club
  • College of Science - MTCC Ballroom
  • School of Applied Technology - Perlstein Lounge
  • Stuart School of Business - Hermann Hall Armour Dining Room

Immediately following the academic unit receptions, all colleges will proceed to Convocation in the Hermann Hall Auditorium. IIT President John Anderson, Student Government Association President Akinade Aderele, and Puifai Santisakultarm (BME '04) will join me in officially welcoming you to IIT.

After Convocation, join us for the Student Involvement Festival outside of Hermann Hall. Visit more than 80 student organizations to find the right one for you -- and plan to "get involved" during the 2014-2015 academic year.

Come learn a bit more about the university, meet some new classmates, and join us to celebrate the beginning of the fall semester and the start of your new academic career at Illinois Institute of Technology.

I look forward to meeting you all.
