One of the components of the First Year Experience program is the Freshman 15. This program, which is a list of 15 campus programs/events, is geared toward helping first-year students fully experience what it is to be an IIT student.
The Office of Campus Life is currently accepting submissions for events that departments, student organizations, or other IIT-affiliated organizations will sponsor for the fall 2014 semester. The ability to have events listed as part of the Freshman 15 won’t require any extra work for departments, but will provide another avenue to market to students. Campus Life is looking for a mix of social, educational, and traditional events. While not required, preference is given to on-campus events and events that have no charge.
