WIE First-Year Orientation is designed to welcome incoming women undergraduates in the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign’s Grainger College of Engineering, Agricultural and Biological Engineering, Chemical Engineering, and CS + X majors, including transfer and international students. Approximately 2/3 of the first-year women attend! At WIE Orientation, the first-year women not only get to know each other but also get to know upperclassmen in the various Engineering majors. Activities and workshops during Orientation help the women adjust to college, gain confidence in their engineering abilities, and begin to form a supportive community.
Current students are invited to share their stories and experiences with women exploring and choosing their paths. Please check this page for more information!
WIE is working with college advising to offer academic support. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment.
