“Students don’t picture themselves being the best they can be in a space that’s outdated.”

YOUR GIFT MATTERS :: Illinois College must offer contemporary learning spaces that attract, engage and inspire students, and give world-class faculty the facilities they need to teach and conduct research. Because student athletes make up around half of the student population on campus, outstanding athletic facilities play a key part in recruiting and retaining students who will be competitive and engaged on and off the field.
