IU2U program

Upon arriving at an IU2U workshop, new students and their parents will be greeted by current IU students - our IU2U student leaders - who will help them get settled in for the day. Students and parents will attend separate workshops specifically designed to address their needs.

What students can expect:

  • opportunities to learn what student life is really like from current IU students
  • activities to learn about helpful resources and academic opportunities
  • information about degree requirements and class scheduling so that students can enroll early in two classes after attending the workshop
  • games, prizes, and lots of fun along the way

What parents can expect:

  • helpful information presented by IU faculty and staff about finances, academics, health, safety, support services, and more
  • current students sharing their advice for personal and academic success
  • an opportunity to get answers to all their questions
  • resources to turn to in the future when additional questions arise

Don't miss this great opportunity to make new friends, enroll early in a couple of classes, and get answers to all your questions about life at IU!

IU2U is currently available in three different countries. The pre-arrival orientations are presented primarily in English, though Chinese and Korean translators will be available in the parent programs.
