How will I get there?
You will need to figure out a means of transportation to Urbana-Champaign, whether it be by car, plane, train, or anything but a boat or submarine. We can arrange for someone to meet you wherever and however you arrive so you don’t get lost in a cornfield (JK! That’s never happened before, I think).
How do we get paired with a host?
After you register, you will receive a confirmation email within 24 hrs and will be given a link to an online form asking for your major, interests, housing preferences, etc… We will try to find the most compatible host from that information. With your host, you’ll meet lots of other ladies in the program and their hosts, you’ll spend 2 nights with them to see what living on campus is like, attend some of their classes, tour our beautiful campus, as well as attend additional activities provided.
Can I arrive late or leave early?
Sure thing, we will try to make sure you get the most out of the program while you’re with us. Just let us know and we’ll make arrangements!
Can I visit friends while I’m on campus?
We understand that many people have friends and family on campus, but we ask that if you choose to participate in this program, you participate in all the planned events and spend the duration of the program with your paired undergrad. Please find another time to visit your friends and family.
Are parents allowed to attend events in the program?
No. We request parents to refrain from attending any events in the program so everyone is comfortable and can get a feel for college life.
