From the President...

Welcome alumni, friends, and family!   Thank you for visiting our site.

Our Club is a link between University of Illinois Alumni Association (UIAA) and Phoenix Illini Alumni.  We provide sports and cultural events, game watches, golf outings, speaker programs, and social events as opportunities to meet and greet, socialize, network, and continue learning. 

You can learn a lot about our Club through "About Us" in the above menu bar.  The President's Welcome Letter is the page that you are reading now.  We are very proud of our Scholarship program described in Scholarship Info - tax deductable contributions can be made here to assist Phoenix area students.

We encourage you to become a Club member to take full advantage of Club benefits.  Annual dues are only $20 (Single or Family). This money is used for the essential operations of our club.  You can join under Club Membership in the above menu bar.

Here are some of our Club membership benefits:

  • Opportunities to meet and greet, develop new friends and network – especially those new to Phoenix
  • Access to our Club member directory
  • Discount ticket prices for Blackhawks, Cubs, Bulls and Da Bears with favorable pricing for Members and without Ticketmaster Fees
  • Free entry to Premium Club events
  • Value price on Club polo shirts, hats and accessories at Club Store
  • 15% discount on Illini Stuff from All Things Illini (Champaign based sponsor)
We look forward to seeing you.
