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

That is quite a collective presence here in Southern Arizona!  Wouldn’t it be great to get together with other alums from time to time to watch a football or basketball game and cheer for our team?  Or, attend one of our many social or cultural functions throughout the year?  The Tucson Illini Club was formed over 20 years ago to provide venues for Illini alums living in the Tucson area to get together informally and have fun.  There is no time commitment or obligation to attend events that will be offered this year, and membership in the Illinois Alumni Association is optional.

Our plans for this year include wine tastings, dinner with a guest speaker, pizza nights, dinner theater, cultural activity 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, our membership cost is very low, there is no time obligation on your part, and you will have a great time at our events.  Give us a try.  We’d look forward to having you as a member!  Recent graduates (class of 2011, 2012 and 2013) are invited to join their first year for free.
