UIUC visiting

<p>I'm an incoming freshman, and I haven't visited UIUC yet..
So I just wanted to visit in June before school starts in August.
What's the visiting program like? What do you do there?
Any advice?</p>

<p>Are you aware that you need to do a summer registration session at UIUC at which you register for classes and get a huge amount of information? In other words, why are you not reserving a date for that in June so you also have a visit. Anything else in June would just be the usual tour for students who might apply next fall -- you get some basic info on the university, a tour around the campus and possibly meet some students or administrators/faculty from the college/department you might be interested in; see description here: U</a> of I Admissions: Visit Illinois.</p>

<p>I had to sign up for a remote registration because I'm not going to be in the US in July~early August.
So I won't be visiting the campus for that..</p>

<p>But summer registration dates for freshman begin June 6 and run daily through the week. Thus, if you are going in June why not try to get one of the June days.</p>

<p>June registration dates weren't available when I signed up. But now it seems like they added new June dates. So I signed up again with a new date. I wouldn't have checked if you didn't mention it -- thank you.
What do you exactly do at a summer registration? As far as I know, you just get to talk to a counselor and sign up for classes. But I saw people on UIUC's Facebook page looking for other people who have it on the same day. I don't understand what the point is. And are parents involved, too, or not?</p>

<p>Here is the general outline: U</a> of I Admissions: Summer Registration</p>

<p>Parents can come and attend the lectures/presentations on the university in general and its services (security, health, recreation, busses,dorms, etc., etc.) However, having parents there is not a necessity. Students will meet alone with a counselor and then register for classes via computers available at UIUC. You can obviously meet other students because there will be many others there doing the same things you are.</p>
