We look forward to your participation in the Illinois College 2015 Trustee Scholarship Weekend on January 29 and January 30. The scholarship event begins on Friday, January 29, at 7 p.m. in the Bruner Fitness and Recreation Center for the Presidential Reception where you will meet the president of Illinois College and various members of our faculty, staff, administration, and student ambassadors. Introductory remarks will begin at approximately 8 p.m. and the reception will conclude at 9 p.m. An assortment of tabled hors d’oeuvres will be available throughout the evening.
The scholarship weekend will resume Saturday morning with a continental breakfast in Cummings Dining Hall beginning at 8 a.m. You will be given a personalized schedule that will include the time and location for your scholarship interview. I’ve enclosed 15 mock questions with this letter to help you anticipate the type of interview questions you may be asked. In addition to your scholarship interview, the day will include unique information sessions for you and your guests.
Reserved parking will be available both Friday and Saturday at the south parking lot, on Park Street, located across from England Stadium. Shuttles will transport you to the event and will return you to your vehicle. Please see the enclosed campus map for the parking lot location. A city map and hotel information are also enclosed.
Attire for the weekend will be "Sunday best" or "business casual" as this is a professional event.
We look forward to seeing you at Trustee Scholarship Weekend! Please feel free to contact our office at 217.245.3030 should you or your family have any questions about the weekend.
