This upcoming weekend, the College of Business will be hosting its annual "Business Experience" event on Saturday, March 9. The Business Experience is one of my favorite events because it really gives admitted students a feel for what attending the University of Illinois, College of Business will be like.
I remember attending the event nearly four years ago as a prospective student. I was able meet professors and current students. I met students with a wide variety of interests and experiences - some of these students were accountancy majors so I was able to ask them questions about what classes to take, where to live and listen to any other general advice they had to offer. I attended the event with my parents who were also glad to get many of their questions answered and see what life would be like for me the following Fall.
I highly recommend that if you are an admitted student you come and visit campus this weekend. You will be able to meet some of your peers, and see what the Business Intructional Facility (BIF) is like. Most of your business classes will be held in BIF or across the street in Wohlers Hall. One of the things I love about the College of Business is that we are a large Big 10 school, but since all of our business classes are really housed under two roofs - it gives the College a small school atmosphere. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org and hopefully we will see you this weekend! GO ILLINI!
