The Illinois Club is one of the oldest university social clubs serving the University and Champaign-Urbana community. The purpose of our Club is to promote friendship and education, this purpose is achieved through interest groups, campus tours, University of Illinois scholarship awards, and special events.

A Letter from the President...


It is time to welcome new faces to the Champaign-Urbana community. Our Opening Party is just a few weeks away. Invite those new neighbors, work colleagues and all those you gather in friendship with to join us at Lodgic Everyday Community on September 15th from 5:30 to 7:00 pm. The event is free but we do appreciate you sending the number in your party to reservations@theillinoisclub.org so we can plan appropriately.

The Opening Party will give you a chance to explore all our interest groups and also an opportunity to start a new interest group. Bring your idea and we'll provide you a space to connect with other members who share your passion. Contact interestgroups@theillinoisclub.org for help getting started.

I leave you to explore the newsletter. There is a lot happening. Enjoy!

Cheers,
Donna Offenbecher
