Congratulations on being accepted! Join us for Mediaplooza and explore all the College of Media at Illinois has to offer you.
Meet your future professors, classmates, and advisors. Learn about your curriculum. Hear from current students about the exciting internships that are in your future. Explore the student organizations you should join on day one of your college adventure. Network with the Dean of the College.
Mediapalooza is the BEST way to decide that Illinois is the place for you.
What attendees had to say:
“I wish to thank you and the students, professors, department heads and Dean who all gave up their Saturday in an effort to convey the uniqueness of your program to the prospective students, and especially my daughter Caroline. Caroline came to campus with a curiosity and left with a desire to attend U of I. While she has been accepted to other universities none have made the effort to make a small town girl from Coronado, CA feel "at home". I've never seen a major university convey the special attention your department did for students.“
Dennis – Coronado, CA
“I am very happy to say that Zack accepted his admission to the U of I last night. After meeting and speaking with everyone involved with the College of Media, my husband and I were confident that this program was the right choice for Zack. With much consideration, we all agreed this would be a wonderful program for him to grow, learn, and truly explore his field, and we expect him to take full advantage of this opportunity. He is soooo excited!!!!”
Tani - Weston, FL
"I think Mediapalooza is an excellent event because you get to really meet the people that are going to be shaping your college experience at the University of Illinois the next four years. You'll get opportunities to meet everyone from advisors to professors to your future classmates and colleagues, and together really provides the experience for what it's like to be a Media student at the U of I!
I've had incredible experiences with college so far at the University of Illinois. I love being able to be on a Big Ten campus where I'm able to be involved in activities like the Marching Illini, but I still have plenty of opportunities to be able to do things relating to my journalism major, including WPGU radio and writing for the Daily Illini newspaper. The professors and teachers are amazing here and truly care about my well-being, but also prepare me for internships, job and life in general in the future. " -- Stephen, Junior in Journalism
