Fire up for UIC Homecoming! UIC Students, faculty, staff, and alumni are invited to UIC Flames Homecoming 2019, that time of the year where we all come together to celebrate the past present and future of UIC.

We hope that you will be able to join us for at least one of the events happening during the week! Show us how much fun you are having at the events by tagging us on social media with #UICHOCO.
  • Hustle up UH 11/15

    Ever wondered how many floors are in UIC’s University Hall (UH)? 28. 28 floors to conquer!

    Similar to Chicago’s Hustle Up the Hancock, this is UIC’s very own event that challenges students, staff, faculty, and alumni to climb to the top of University Hall. At the top, grab a snack, rest and relax, and enjoy the best view UIC’s campus has to offer. Registration proceeds will go towards UIC’s Pop-Up Food Pantry, a campus resource aimed at combating food insecurity among UIC students.

    $5 for students
    $10 for alumni, staff, and faculty

    Registration starts at 4:30pm and the first wave will commence at 5pm. We hope to see you there!

    Hosted by UIC University Ambassadors

    Top three organization winners will be awarded Student Organization Support funds. First place $200 SOR Support, second place $100 SOR Support, and third place $50 SOR Support. Windows will be judged on creativity, incorporation of the Homecoming theme, and, of course, school spirit!

    Organizations must clean up all excess paint from their area–window frames, tables, floors, etc.

  • Taste of UIC 11/20

    Taste of UIC is on Wednesday, November 20th from 12pm – 2pm. We are looking for student organizations who are interested in participating. Each organization would prepare a booth with an exhibit to show the essence of their organization’s culture. This can include any traditional clothing, art by members of your culture, languages, or just interesting facts that make your culture unique. UIC students will be encouraged to visit your booth and get a ‘taste’ of the variety of cultures our university encompasses.  With the event date approaching quickly we ask that if you are interested in exhibiting your culture at Taste of UIC that you fill out THIS form no later than November 17th.
