Business LLC

Orientation

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.

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!

When is it?

The Business LLC Orientation is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday evening, August 16 through Thursday, August 18.

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 and all orientation activities. This charge will be billed to your student account.

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 at 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.

Honors LLC

Orientation

What is it?

Each year, an energetic group of returning Honors LLC students plans an incredible two-day orientation program for all new Honors LLC residents (both new to the University and returning students who are new to the LLC). The $35.00 Orientation fee covers your early move-in (beginning the first day of Orientation) and meals during Honors LLC Orientation programming.

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

This happens 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 Honors LLC events while they are in progress.

This course introduces six core values and provides students with a foundational understanding of empathy.

Prerequisite: Restricted to Honors Living-Learning Community students.

Sustainability LLC

Orientation

What is it?

Each year, an energetic group of returning Sustainability LLC students plans an incredible two-day orientation program for all new Sustainability LLC residents (both new to the university and returning students who are new to the LLC). The $15 fee covers your early move-in (beginning the first day of Orientation) and meals during Orientation programming.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.

What if I also need to attend my academic registration program while Sustainability 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 Sustainability events while they are in progress.

Can only freshmen participate in the orientation program?

Absolutely not! Although some events may be of greater interest to first-year students, all new Sustainability LLC residents are invited to participate in orientation. Sustainability 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.
