Get to know our campus!


Here’s an event that new transfers should try and take advantage of! Even if you’ve been here for a few semesters, you should check this out! Tours of Memorial Stadium are being held tomorrow, April 24, 2013! The first tour is at 11 AM and the second tour is at 1 PM. Each tour should last about an hour. Come see behind the scenes of the Fighting Illini’s field! 

If you are interested, please meet by the Grange statue on the West side of Memorial Stadium (which is the side facing First St.) at least 5-10 minutes before your tour begins.

RSO Spotlight: Illini Union Board

Hey to all old and new members of LAS TAG! Hope everyone’s winter break was great!

Are you fairly new to the University and looking for a group to join? Check out the Illini Union Board. It is a group of students who plan events for their fellow students! There are several committees including Weekend Entertainment, Special Events, and Musicals. You can find a committee that interests you and attend weekly meetings in order to discuss ideas of events! There are no requirements to join!

Nick Offerman from NBC’s Parks and Recreation came to the University of Illinois for a comedy show last year!

IUB brings a lot of fun events to school such as comedy shows (like Nick Offerman, shown in the picture), concerts, art shows, etc.

The Spring interest meeting is on January 23rd, 2013 from 6-8pm at Illini Union I-Room B. There will be free pizza so go check it out!
