From the President....



For over 150 years, the University of Illinois has been the flagship university of our great state.  The alumni base in Chicagoland alone, is larger than many other schools have in total.  The quality of the education we, as alumni, have received is of the highest quality and value, as well.  As of today, our alumni generate nearly $14 billion for the Illinois economy on an annual basis!  The talent and innovation generated by our University is unparalelled.

The mission of The Suburban Illini Club is to inspire, promote and engage the alumni in Chicago's suburbs.  Over the years, our efforts have produced academic and athletic scholarship opportunities,  for new students and student atheletes.  We continue to grow our scholarship fund by hosting events that appeal to the various interests of our alumni.  Over the years, we have held events that include:

  • Athletics
  • Business
  • Arts & Sciences
  • Community

"...our efforts have produced numerous academic and athletic scholarship opportunities..."


Please join us by attending our events, inviting your friends and colleagues and offering your input and assistance.  The stronger we grow as a club, the more we can offer to our alumni.  You're already an Illini, now become an active Suburban Illini!
