Severe Weather Threat Continues Into Monday

Good evening everyone! We're excited to see you all tomorrow, but please be advised that the weather forecast warns about heavy rain in the city! Please be prepared and dress accordingly.

Meteorologist Orelon Sidney forecasts severe weather in the Midwest and Northeast early next week.


We've wrapped up the first half of the summer and have welcomed over 2,000 new students into UIC! We hope everyone is having a great week and we'll see you all when we start back up on July 10th!

First Year Orientation Program check in for this Summer 2017 will be at the Student Center East (SCE) building. If you are driving to campus, it is advised that you park closer to that building, specifically in the Halsted parking structure. If you choose to park by the Behavioral Sciences Building (BSB), there will be orientation leaders guiding you to where check in is supposed to be.


We are about to reveal our first two "Sparks of the Week"!

Spark of the Week is an award we give to two SOLs that deserve recognition for their exemplary work during programs for the past week. We acknowledge that all of our Leaders have done their best so far, and this award encourages everyone to always strive for excellence! Stay tuned!
