The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign hosts multiple types of programs designed to get you acquainted with our campus. These visit days may include presentations, interactive student panels, campus tours, and residence hall tours. You may even be able to attend a lecture!
In the spring and fall, the University hosts Orange and Blue Days—larger, day-long programs for prospective students and their families. In the fall, Orange and Blue Days are also available for prospective transfer students. If you choose to visit on and Orange and Blue Day, you will also be invited to a WIE afternoon reception where current women engineering students will be available for questions and discussion.
During February, March, and April, these day-long programs are designed to help you get to know your future home firsthand. If you choose to visit on an Admitted Student Day, you will also be invited to a WIE luncheon where you will be an upperclassman in your major. Following the luncheon will be a brief student panel where our women engineering students will share their passion for Engineering at Illinois.
The student-run Engineering Council offers various visit options for prospective students. Please visit the EIB website for more information about campus visits and the Shadow an Engineer Program.
As an admitted female engineer, you are invited to attend one of two student-run overnight weekends; Little Sisters Weekend or All About Engineering. Visit the Women in Engineering Visit Options webpage for full details.
If you are unable to attend a Women in Engineering Overnight weekend or an Admitted Student Day Luncheon, and are coming on a different date, please email Women in Engineering as they are happy to set up a personal meeting with you during your visit to campus.
