SCHMOOZE is our pre-orientation program (POP) for incoming first-year students at Northwestern. It's an overnight program that starts the day before move-in, September 15th, and ends the next morning. 
What can I expect?
SCHMOOZE begins at Northwestern Hillel on Sunday, September 15th. We'll kick off our program with lunch and a chance to learn more about opportunities to explore Jewish life on campus. Later in the day we'll break off into smaller groups to get to know other new students, as well as returning students, and we'll be joined by President Morty Schapiro, who will address incoming students and parents! Participants can look forward to community building activities, LOTS of food, and the opportunity to spend the night on campus while making connections that will jumpstart your experience as a Wildcat.  Our program ends on Monday, September 16th with breakfast before you move in to your new home on campus!
SCHMOOZE is a chance to meet other incoming Jewish students, as well as current students, and explore Jewish life on campus through various activities!
