Dawg Days welcomes the freshman class and transfer students to SIU with the purpose of giving them an opportunity to have fun, make friends and learn more about life at SIU! During the day, students have the opportunity to choose and take part in several camp-related activities such as duct tape dodge-ball, broomball and canoe-battleship! Optional activities include zip lining, rock climbing and regular canoeing. Online registration covers travel to and from locations, lodging, all meals, all activities and SWAG! Absolutely no lectures, but you get an opportunity to have a good first impression of SIU and Touch of Nature.
