CEE Tailgate

October 14, 2017


New this year!! CEE alumni, students, faculty and staff are invited to come together to network and celebrate at CEE's first ever tailgate! Join us for a great day of tailgating with food, drinks and networking prior to the Illinois vs. Rutgers football game in Memorial Stadium. Game tickets will also be available for purchase.

This will be a busy weekend on campus, with many special events going on. See give.illinois.edu/launchevent for details about other planned campus activities. Due to the number of anticipated campus visitors, we recommend you make your hotel reservations early to guarantee a room. Special CEE at Illinois group rates have been arranged with the hotels listed below; availability at these rates is limited and is on a first-come/first-served basis. Group rates expire in September.
