Homecoming Tailgate

Illinois Homecoming is one of the University’s oldest and most memorable traditions. This year, for the first time ever, the Engineering at Illinois Homecoming Tailgate will take place right in the middle of the tailgating action. Join us as we visit with fellow alumni and enjoy delicious food prior to cheering the Fighting Illini on to victory. As a member of the Engineering at Illinois family, we hope you will make plans to be a part of this year’s exciting event!
