Schedule & Check-In


After you register, you'll receive a confirmation email with a link to your personalized schedule for the day. This will include all the events you've signed up for. We'll also email you your schedule the morning of your visit so it's fresh in your inbox!


When you arrive on campus, you can go directly to the first event on your schedule. This is where you'll check in. Check-in times vary depending on the event, but most will be available 15 to 30 minutes before the event begins.

If you find yourself with downtime during the day, check out our list of open events. These events don't require registration in order to attend!


If you plan to drive, I-72, I-74, and I-57 all lead directly to Champaign-Urbana. You can also arrive by train or bus at the Illinois Terminal, which is two miles away from campus, or you can fly to Champaign's Willard Airport, which is five miles away from campus.
