University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign

Illini-ans unite. The pride at University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and strength in community is super strong here. Which means students get not only the traditional college feel and major campus spirit, but also a friendly hello from basically anyone you walk past.

Pacific Northwest Tour – Oregon State & Linfield College

Polar opposites here! We couldn’t have chosen two more different institutions to explore.
