Notice Regarding COVID-19

Thanks for your patience during this time of uncertainty. To ensure the safety of our campus community considering the evolving situation with coronavirus (COVID-19), we have made the tough decision to suspend upcoming campus visits, tours and events until further notice. We continue to monitor this global health situation and hope to start hosting events again soon.

While there are no reported cases of the virus on our campus, we are committed to mitigating its possible effects, and the health and safety of our Panthers is of utmost concern. Learn more about our response to coronavirus COVID-19 developments and find resources meant to support the health and wellness of our university community.

In the meantime, browse the future events that are open for registration below or take advantage of our virtual tour. Feel free to reach out to our Admissions counselors at 217-581-2224 or with any questions.
