Frequently Asked Questions...

What is the Madison Illini Club?
We are a regional supplemental chapter of the University of Illinois Alumni Association. We welcome alumni and friends of all three campuses of the University of Illinois. We host social events, cultural outings, alumni networking, student recruitment, and community service activities in the Madison area. The University estimates the Madison areas has at least 7,000 alumni.

How is the Club related to the University of Illinois Alumni Association (UIAA)?
The Alumni Association provides direction for our Club and co-sponsors selected Club events. The Madison Illini Club maintains its own membership list and e-mails only to members.  Membership to the local club is separate from the sustaining membership offered by the UIAA. The club does recommend its members to become at least sustaining members of the UIAA.
