Here's what you need to know as you prepare for your Preview orientation.
Preview is a two-day orientation program, and staying overnight in the residence halls is strongly encouraged for students. Past participants report that staying overnight during Preview was great for getting comfortable with their new environment and meeting new people.
Prior to attending Preview, students may be required to take the ALEKS math placement assessment.
Our campus is in Normal, just a short drive from Chicago and St. Louis. Uptown Normal’s Amtrak station and Bloomington’s airport put us within a few hours of most major U.S. cities.
Civic engagement is a core value at Illinois State University. Your first opportunity to participate starts during Preview with our annual Freshman Donation Project. Embrace one of Illinois State's core values of civic engagement by donating a school supply item to elementary school students in the Bloomington-Normal community.
Individuals with disabilities or dietary restrictions may request reasonable accommodations for assistance during Preview. Requests must be made with advance notice to allow the University adequate time to respond.
Be prepared for your stay at Preview.
