Golden Eagle Welcome Day provides an opportunity for Northeastern faculty and staff to welcome the newest members of our Golden Eagle family—our new first-year and transfer students.


Our event is designed to welcome the incoming Fall 2019 freshman class as well as transfer students who will begin in Fall 2019. Current student workers, faculty and staff will be here to welcome you to the University.


Activities for the day include a special ceremony to honor our newest students with a commemorative pin. After welcome remarks from University leadership and the pinning ceremony, students will be treated to lunch and will be joined by our faculty. After lunch students can participate in Playfair and other activities and tours.

The full schedule and event details can be found at the NEIU Golden Eagle Welcome Day website.
