Facts & Statistics

Things I Wish I Knew Before Coming To School
  • Always, always have your I-card with you. You need it to get on the bus, to eat, to get in your dorm, and to identify yourself at your exams. And learn your student ID number by heart. In a big school, it is practically your name.
  • Be very careful about which dorm you pick. Find out about the living-learning communities, even if you don't think you want to live in them. If you are an art and culture enthusiast, for instance, you might find more people who share your interests in Allen Hall than in FAR.
  • Do not take SOC 100 or any easy Gen-Ed classes if you don't have to; take Gen-Eds that will complement your major, and ones that are actually challenging.
  • Don't come here expecting to always eat in the dining halls. Store emergency "Pasta, again?" reserves in your room. And take advantage of the A La Carte meals. They might not be in your dorm cafeteria, but they are worth the trip.
  • Don't come to an un-air-conditioned dorm without a fan.
  • Don't live with someone you knew from high school. It never works out.
  • Don't wear sandals or heels to walk to class. Even if they are cute. Also, buy lots of hoodies. Come November, you won't be wearing anything else.
  • Join clubs as soon as you get to college. Don't wait because you would rather make friends and get adjusted to school. Your classes won't be hard enough to take up all your time, you'll make a lot of your college friends in a club or organization that you truly enjoy and want to be in. And being in an good organization for four years looks great on a resume.
  • Learn the 22 Illini Route (and the other campus buses, but especially this one). Sit there with a map of the bus route and a map of the campus and compare the two as you watch the scene go by. Be sure to mark your classes on the campus map before going on this adventure.
  • Meet your neighbors in the first week of school, when people are still making an effort to be social and everyone is in the same boat, trying to make friends.
Interviews & Information Sessions
Call the admissions office at (217) 333-0302 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (central), or e-mail them at
Campus Tours
The Campus Visitor Center is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. There are also select Saturday programs throughout the year, from September 12 to November 15. During this time, prospective students and visitors are given a tour and housing and admissions information. You must make a reservation. Call (217) 333-0824, or fill out the online form at
Overnight Visits
Once you are accepted to U of I, you will be invited to an orientation weekend through the mail. If you choose to attend U of I, you can select a time you wish to visit the school during the summer. You will spend that time living in the dorms, eating in the dining halls, touring the Quad, and meeting with teachers and students in your field. This is also when you will register for the coming semester. Before you go, it might be a good idea to look at the courses online and plan your schedule ahead of time, since it will be your first time registering.
