They have an airport in Champaign - (CMI). I imagine you'll have a layover in Chicago (not sure which airport, but I think Midway is better for layovers because all the food is in the middle).
ETA: And check kayak.com or farecompare.com for good flight deals.
I think CMI is scary expensive to fly into, but admittedly I haven't checked since I live in Chicago. A layover in Chicago also give you two opportunities to get screwed by weather instead of one. Unless you are really daring with scheduling connecting flights, the fastest way to get to Urbana-Champaign is by car from Chicago. I think this may also be cheaper than flying if you can find a good deal on a car rental.
I have to imagine that there will be a number of TLS people trying to get from Chicago to the accepted student events at UIUC (hopefully I'll be one of them). This does open up the option of carpooling provided that we can make sure nobody is a serial killer.
