Spark is UIC’s very own music concert that takes place in the first few weeks of the Fall semester. Spark is free for UIC students. In 2010 as a back-to-school event, Spark was designed to bring local, national, little known, and well-known artists to campus. The Spark offers a mix of entertainment for UIC’s diverse campus community.
