About Us >  Being True Blue > 

True academics.
First-year students exploring “Microbes and Society.” Seniors conducting independent research in rhetoric, psychology, education and physics. It’s all interesting, and it’s all here at Illinois College.
True celebration.
Leonard Pitts Jr., a Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist, spoke at the inaugural Betty Jane Jost Lecture Series on January 25 as part of the campus-wide celebration of the life and work of Martin Luther King Jr.
True collaboration.
What does “collaboration” mean to you? For students involved in our Orchid Recovery Program, it means working closely with faculty and fellow students to design experiments …”
True competition.
Over 160 athletes currently fill our varsity rosters, between basketball, track and field, baseball, softball and tennis. Add 120 intramural athletes and it’s easy to understand why the Bruner Fitness and Recreation Center is always busy. 
True connections.

True involvement.
Alumni make valuable contributions to our campus community through their involvement in career mentorship programs, literary societies and financial support. 
True opportunities.
A unique research project. The chance to study abroad. A summer internship that leads to your first job. Our students, like this group of Trustee Scholars, have lots of options — and you can too.
True service.

True spirit.
True Blue. It’s the only way to describe the enthusiasm and spirit at Illinois College. Whether it’s homecoming weekend or an MWC championship event, we’ll be there ... in blue.
True success.
Bridget Burshears ’01 feels she has the best job in the world as a neonatologist in the NICU of a Utah hospital. “My favorite part is getting to interact with the families ...”
