Students moved in on Thursday, Aug. 18. #ILLINOISwelcome activities began with campus' convocation ceremony.
After convocation, first-year LAS students paraded across campus to Krannert Center for the Performing Arts for LAS Liftoff, our annual welcome event.
The next day, we welcomed our new transfer students at Liftoff for Transfers.
The festivities included Illinois Sights and Sounds on Saturday night and Quad Day on Sunday.
Classes began Monday. Join us in wishing the new Illini a great year!
It's a record! We welcomed our largest-ever freshman class to campus this fall.
