This two-day program is sponsored by the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (ChBE) and organized by the current students of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers - University of Illinois Student Chapter (Illinois AIChE). Illinois AIChE is a registered student organization that promotes the professional and personal development of chemical engineering undergraduate students.

However, we will have current students eager to suggest and show you the best places around campus for every meal. If you would like to know more about this program, please check out our FAQ page.
