Orientation activities will take place at the UIC School of Public Health building located at 1603 West Taylor Street, Chicago, Illinois 60612. Orientation is extremely important and all new students are strongly encouraged to attend! This is a time for you to meet faculty, staff and fellow students, and to learn all the information you will need to know for a successful experience at UIC SPH.
