If anyone is sure they are going to Illinois, I'm currently trying to crunch numbers and see that the village would be pretty cheap for 4 of us to split a 4/4 unit. According to the site, it would be around 400 or so per person. I'm going to give them a call but pm me if it's something you would be interested in!

So who's starting this FB group?! Also, because it seems that many of you guys are going to the March 20th ASD event, do people want to do something after the day is done?

Usually the school organizes something with professors and students, but you can certainly get together on your own.

I like it to. I'm staying through Sunday afternoon, so I'm also looking to hangout and grab a few drinks Saturday.

Flight is booked to get in Thursday to Chicago. Haven't booked a rental car or hotel yet, if anyone wants to split something or can offer a ride from Chicago I would be grateful.

I booked a hotel in Chicago for Wednesday night and in Champaign from Thursday through Saturday night. I'm definitely looking for more to do after Friday's events. Is anyone else going with Illinois as their second choice? I'm looking forward to the trip, but I feel a little awkward going in with this in mind after my in state school gave me a better offer.

Edit: I don't know if I'll be able to rent a car.

I'm in for getting together with people Friday night or Saturday. I'll be driving from WI, so I've got a pretty flexible schedule.

Same. Hardly even bad. Safe travels to those of you who are coming from farther away.

Looks like we're going to Joe's Brewery at Green and 5th. OP says it's an undergrad bar, so that will be fun. We'll be there around 8:30 or 8:45.

Sorry I got in late (just checked in). My final ran late. See everyone tomorrow, though. Should be fun.
