Fall Orientation

Orientation for Business LLC Residents

We are so excited that you will be joining us in the Business Living-Learning Community!  Incoming Business LLC residents will be contacted at their university e-mail addresses with registration information for our Fall 2022 orientation.  We anticipate updated information about Business LLC admission and Fall orientation registration will be available by mid-June.  If you have not been contacted by that time, please contact at businessllc@housing.illinois.edu.  We look forward to seeing you in August! 

What is it?

Each year, we plan an exciting two-and-a-half day Orientation program for all new Business LLC residents (both new to the University and returning students who are new to the LLC).  This gives residents the opportunity to move in two days early, get settled, make new friends, and participate in a variety of fun activities before campus-wide orientation begins.

When is it?

The Business LLC Orientation is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday evening, August 16 through Thursday, August 18. Find out more information about Move-In.

How much is it to join?

The $30 orientation program charge covers your early move-in (beginning the first day of Business LLC orientation), meals during orientation programming, all orientation activities and a t-shirt. This charge will be billed to your student account. No need to send money now.

Is it mandatory to attend the fall Orientation program?

While it is not mandatory, we strongly suggest that new LLC students attend Orientation. The vast majority of LLC residents students do attend Orientation.

Can only freshmen participate in the Orientation program?

Absolutely not! Although some events may be of greater interest to first-year students, all new Business LLC residents are invited to participate and register for orientation. BLLC students who are not new students to the University can choose the events and programs that best align with their interests and schedules. Please note that all students are expected and required to adhere to all University policies once they arrive on campus.

What if I also need to attend my academic registration program while the Business LLC Orientation is taking place?

This happens quite often, especially for our international students. This is absolutely fine. Your academic registration should always be your priority. Once you have completed the necessary events for your academic registration, please simply rejoin the BLLC events while they are in progress. 

Updated Fall 2022 Business LLC Orientation information is expected to be available in mid-June.  If you have any questions about the Business LLC Orientation, please contact Daniel Hale (Business LLC Program Director) at businessllc@housing.illinois.edu.
