My Community Life
Thousands of new students join our community for the first time each year. Serving as an I-Guide is a great opportunity to introduce students and their families to campus and make a real impact. Our program is one of the longest-lasting student-run organizations at the University of Illinois. This year we're celebrating 65 years of serving the campus. We need you to help keep it successful!
As an I-Guide, you will:
Become part of the tradition by signing up for one of the following opportunities:
I-Guides wearing orange shirts are an integral part of move-in day, helping new students and their families move in and transition to campus life. We hope you will be as excited about being an I-Guide as our past students have been for over 60 years.
Each hall has one to two Hall Coordinators who manage I-Guide responsibilities during move-in. They participate in a Leadership Training Retreat, recruit I-Guides, facilitate meetings, meet regularly with the Residence Hall Director/Hall Manager and their I-Guide Campus Committee liaison, and prepare the summer newsletter for that hall. The Hall Coordinator position is a great way to get leadership training and experience. You will meet a lot of people and have the chance to really make a difference. If you are interested in being a Hall Coordinator, please contact your Residence Hall Director.
IGCC members are a team of students responsible for coordinating the Illini Guide program. They work with the I-Guide advisors to plan the training retreat, serve as liaisons to Hall Coordinators, and lead a specific area of campus on opening day by trouble-shooting and supporting Hall Coordinators and I-Guides. Selection of the 2011 IGCC has been completed.
