Welcome to the University of Illinois Alumni Club of Greater Washington DC!
Our club strives to support the educational purposes of the University, cultivate friendship among club members, and express loyalty to the University. We are also committed to providing community service and giving back to the area as well as to U of I. We do this through a variety of educational, social, cultural and athletic activities and programs.

Graduates, former students, and friends of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, at Chicago, or at Springfield can join.
