The Next Step: August 15 - 19, 2018


You visited.

You applied.

You came to orientation.

You're all packed for college... Now what?



UNI Now is the next step in starting a successful career at UNI.



UNI Now is an extended orientation designed to foster student success by making connections with other new students and faculty, providing time and help to take care of last-minute business items before classes begin, become acquainted with campus and Cedar Falls, discover UNI Traditions, and find out what it means to be a UNI Panther.

There is no sign-up required; all students admitted for Fall 2018 should plan to attend.

New students living on campus will receive information when they move into the residence halls. New students living off-campus should plan to check in at the Panther Kickoff.

Above, the incoming class of Fall 2016 gathers for a 2,300-person group photo at UNI Now.
