The Illinois Club
Founded in 1906, The Illinois Club is one of few entities on campus
that takes pride in celebrating over 100 years of history!
When we began as the Tuesday Tea Club, little did those women envision that today our
membership would be 25% men and that we would be awarding $20,000 in scholarships every year.
The purpose of our Club is to build the University of Illinois and surrounding
Champaign-Urbana communities by promoting friendship and education. This purpose is
achieved through interest groups, campus tours, University of Illinois scholarship awards,
and special events.
The heart of The Illinois Club, where great friendships begin, are the many
it sponsors. Many of these groups appeal to both men and women, resulting in
a diverse membership. Groups usually meet one or more times a month in members'
homes, or at other locations. Daytime, evening, or weekend meeting times are arranged
by the group.
The Illinois Club also organizes a number of events available to all members throughout
the year. A few events are for Club members only, but most are open to family members
and guests. Check our
for upcoming events and dates.
Among our events are field trips to interesting locations in
the greater Champaign-Urbana community, across the state of Illinois,
and in surrounding states. Our tours are
described in our weekly E-TIC news and website under
prospective members who are new to the University of Illinois community. In addition to
general membership Club outings, we have a welcome reception
just for you, as a part of each year's schedule of events. Details can be found
The Club is a registered University organization and represents Illinois at the biennial
conference of the Big Ten University Women's Clubs.
