The Illinois Institute of Technology invites all family members and supporters to the annual Illinois Tech Family Weekend. Family Weekend is a campus-wide program that welcomes all the family members and supporters of current Illinois Tech students and celebrates their contribution to the community. This is a great opportunity to see what makes the Illinois Tech community special. We hope that you join us for Family Weekend on October 13-15, 2017!
