As soon as students arrive on campus, we provide them with the opportunity to connect with upperclassmen from similar backgrounds, multicultural student organizations that they may get involved in, and a variety of other campus departments and organizations within the Peoria community.
These fun, informal workshops take place during welcome week to provide students with helpful information that is aimed to help them adjust to their new home away from home.
