Family Weekend 2021

Friday, October 1–Sunday, October 3, 2021

Illinois Tech’s Mies Campus

Gear up, parents and families of Illinois Tech students! We are planning a jam-packed weekend for you on Illinois Tech’s Mies Campus! 

Catch a Chicago White Sox baseball game just across the Dan Ryan Expressway from Illinois Tech. Students can buy tickets for $5 each for the White Sox game; they must use “Illinois Tech Family Weekend” in the “Name of Event” field when making their purchase.

We are SOLD OUT of the Illinois Tech Family Weekend White Sox vs. Detroit Tigers ticket sale. If you are still interested in going to the game, you may be able to purchase regular price tickets on the MLB official website.

If you're looking for a unique experience, join us for Operation Escape Room located in the basement of the Tower. One chance to right a wrong; one chance to ensure the legacy and history of one of the greatest circus ring mistresses is preserved! It’s up to you (and your friends), as private investigators to uncover the history of Avis Rosamund Nachtnebel, circus performer, ringmistress, and beloved Great-Aunt of your client Charlie, and solve the mystery surrounding her will. Your group will be placed into a race against time, following the clues left behind by Mrs. Nachtnebel. The assignment: Discover her last will and testament, and ensure her collection is preserved, and not sold off to the highest bidder by Charlie’s wicked uncle. Find the clues, solve the riddles, hunt down the will, and go home to file it all under the codename Operation: CIRCUS. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased here

Have some fun together at The Bog, the student hangout spot on campus, and enjoy food, music, and drinks. We will wrap up the weekend with a family brunch at The Commons cafeteria, courtesy of Illinois Tech!

Get a jump on your weekend early by booking at one of our hotel partners near Mies Campus.
