700+ students coming SIU on Wednesday to see academics in action

About 700 students from 16 area high schools will meet admissions, faculty, and staff to get a closer look at resources and academic programs at Southern Illinois University Carbondale on Wednesday, Sept. 14. The event starts at 10 a.m. in the Student Center. 

After the welcome, students will take part in academic breakout sessions, which include hands-on-activities, in various locales on campus from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. to see academic programs in action. High school students may visit labs, tour campus, experience technology, and view creations by SIU students. 

The students from local schools are getting a preview of the spring SIU Day, which will be held in April. For SIU Day, schools send students to the campus.
