When we established Always Illinois in the mid-2000's, we were working to fill a need for a professional social network for alumni, faculty and staff of the University. To this end, Always Illinois was created. As mainstream social networks like Facebook and LinkedIn have exploded with growth, use of the Always Illinois network has declined. With this in mind, we have decided to discontinue Always Illinois.

Your email redirects with your Always Illinois email address will continue to function. If you need to make any changes to your account, please contact the CITES help desk at (217) 244-7000.

If you have not already, you can connect with the University on all of the major social networks: Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Sina Weibo, Pinterest and YouTube. Below, please find links to the primary social media accounts of each college (many departments and units also have their own accounts).

We appreciate your loyalty and support of the University of Illinois and look forward to interacting with you on social media in the future.
