Armory House Community
The U of I is a large university but you can get connected through Armory House social activities, where you can make new friends. Tired of being indoors in class or the library? Then step out your back door and enjoy your own “green space” in Washington Park. Cookouts, sand volleyball, bags, and frisbee are just a few student favorites. Armory House offers you opportunities to develop cross-cultural skills as you make Friends From Around the World through many fun activities.
