Volunteers each host an admitted engineering student for one night.
With the next batch of babies on the way, it's time to pass foward your experience here. Remember, you were in their shoes not too long ago. It'd be like helping little 18-year-old you.
No need to brush up on your sales pitch. You are not expected to convince anyone to accept Illinois' admission offer. Be honest about the university and be yourself.
There are a few responsibilities we are entrusting to you. First, pick up your student Friday evening. Show him or her around campus, the dorms, the sports, the restaurants, the nightlife. Answer any questions he or she may have. Offer comfortable accomodations for the night at whatever humble abode you dwell in. Then return the student to us Saturday morning on time, safe and happy.
We ask only one night of your time.
