Fall Welcome

August 16 - September 21, 2019

Fall Welcome kicks off another semester at Indiana State University, and whether you're new to campus or returning, we encourage you to experience as much as possible. As a new student, getting connected and involved on campus is a great way to feel at home. There are events each day from which to choose, so get out there and get to know campus, your new friends, and your new home a bit better! And share it with us by using #StateWelcome19!

Welcome to the Family!
