Welcome, Fellow Illini! On behalf of the University of Illinois Alumni Club of Houston ("Houston Illini Club") I thank you for your interest in the club. We host exciting events for you and your guests throughout the year, ranging from game-day watch parties, to after-work mixers, to service projects in the community, to "meet and greets" with visiting U of I bigwigs. Won't you join us by becoming a member?

Our purpose is to:
  • Unite our members based upon our shared Illinois heritage;
  • Serve as a positive force in the Houston community;
  • Provide scholarships to local area high school students who choose to attend the University of Illinois.

If you are a graduate of the University of Illinois (UIUC, UIC or UIS) and reside in the Houston area, please join or renew with the club. Annual dues are only $20 (single) or $25 (family), and you can now pay online via any major credit card! Club membership also provides significant discounts for a variety of club events.
The Houston Illini Club is run by volunteers. We always need help to organize events, to serve on a committee or be a Board member. Membership allows you to enjoy the camraderie of fellow alumni, to meet new people, and to enlarge your professional network!
Remember that ten dollars of your dues supports our annual scholarship. We are proud of our many years' past scholarship winners. Our club's scholarship will continue to raise the University of Illinois' excellent reputation with Houston-area's best high school students.
