Did you know there are over 1,000 University of Illinois alums living in the Tucson area?

The Tucson Illini Club was formed over 20 years ago to provide venues for University of Illinois alums living in the Tucson area to get together informally and have fun.  There is no time commitment or obligation to be a member or to attend events.

Our plans for the remainder of this year and next include wine tastings, happy hours at local craft breweries, pizza nights, Gaslight theater, visiting local landmarks, attending locals

events. sporting events and more. 

It’s interesting to think there are a lot of us living here that share a common thread – being a part of the University of Illinois family!  Think back for a moment of all the students you met while you were on campus that lived perhaps in your town or towns you never heard of before.  Joining the Tucson Illini Club and attending (when time allows) one of our events enables you to reconnect not only with the U of I, but also Illinois itself, where so many of us grew up. 

We are non-profit organization and our membership cost is very low. We survive as a club thanks to alumni like yourself becoming a member and supporting us with your annual dues.  Give us a try.  We’d look forward to having you as a member!  Recent graduates (class of 2016, 2017 and 2018) are invited to join their first year for free.
