Athletics has a strong and proud legacy at Illinois Tech—a tradition of competition that reflects our university's commitment to academic excellence and a dynamic student experience. In our athletics programs, classrooms, and research labs our student-athletes develop the interpersonal, ethical, and leadership skills that help them compete at the highest level in whatever endeavor they choose.
In fact, competition time is a serious advantage at Illinois Tech. Because we are a small, private university, our student-athletes receive personalized attention and more opportunities to compete.
