This is the FIRST visit to Tucson by an Illinois Athletic Director in many years, if ever - An exciting opportunity to hear straight from the AD the current state of Illinois sports programs and plans for next season.

On Tuesday, May 6th, Illini Director of Athletics Mike Thomas and his wife, Jeni, will be the featured guests of the Tucson Illini Club!


As many of you will recall, last year we were pleased to have Illinois head football coach, Tim Beckman, meet with our Tucson Alums to discuss his plans, strategy and thoughts about the Fighting Illini football team and Big Ten competitors.  It was very well attended and a huge success.  There was plenty of Q&A as well.


This year we're excited to have Mike Thomas who heads up all Illinois sports programs!


Join fellow alumni for a social hour with Club supplied appetizers and a cash bar followed by a talk and Q&A with Illinois Director of Athletics Mike Thomas.
