From the President...

Greetings, Illinois alumni! Thank you for visiting our Twin Cities Illini Club website!

Hello Illini!!

The Twin Cities Illini Club offers a multitude of social, networking, community, and sporting events to all alumni of the University of Illinois who live in and around the Twin Cities.

We do not charge membership dues, but we do ask our members for donations. We use these donations to support our events as well as to provide an annual scholarship to an incoming UIUC freshman from the Twin Cities area.

Each year we schedule more than 40 Illini football and basketball gamewatches at our home location -- the Loop at West End in St. Louis Park.  We regularly attend football, basketball and volleyball games to cheer on the Illini when they come to Minneapolis to play the University of Minnesota. We hold quarterly volunteer events to give back to our community. And we co-host events with our friends from the other local Big Ten alumni clubs… such as the annual Big Ten softball tournament!!

We can’t do all of this without the support of our members… just like you!!!

We are always on the lookout for new ideas for events and activities to help us grow our club. If you are interested in getting involved with our club, or just want to learn more about us, please send me a note at

Whether you can give one hour a week or one hour a year – there are always opportunities to help us with our activities! Without volunteers, we would not be able to grow as we have over the past few years…

There are three ways to find out what’s going on with our club and get the latest on what’s happening at the University of Illinois:
