Stadium seats are comfortable, typical price on food and drinks. Now the Illini just need to get their football program together.

So if you're a townie new to the CU area (me) and not an alumni of the UofI (same again) I'd highly recommend catching a game at memorial stadium. The tickets were a great price for the seats, plenty of parking for free within a...More

No tours, just open to the public for events. Check with the University Athlete office there are events that you can attend that don't have the crowds!
