Submit Your Events to the Eagle Takeoff Schedule

Eagle Takeoff is the new “Welcome Week,” but instead of just one week, it’s the full schedule of everything going on around campus the first seven weeks of the fall semester. From the Student Resource & Wellness Fair on Move-in Day, to Family Weekend the first weekend in October, we want to include all events that are open to all students.

Eagle Takeoff helps students get involved on campus and get to know all the different resources available to them. We hope that you’ll consider including your department’s events in this year’s schedule!

Submit your events to the Eagle Takeoff schedule here.
