Muhammad University Visits UIC CHANCE Program National Summer Transportation Institute

Recently, the UIC CHANCE Program hosted the Muhammad University of Islam High School (MUI Campus) for their first “College Day”.  What a joy it was to host future leaders of this nation as we  were honored to accommodate 35 students who seemed thrilled enough to immerse themselves into the daily life of the UIC culture. Our visitors followed a day-long schedule that allowed them the opportunity to gain valuable information about the UIC student experience.  In addition to the campus tour, students enjoyed lectures from Mr. Gerald Smith, Director, Minority Recruitment, College of Engineering, and Dr. Lori Baptista, UIC Professor & Director of the African American Cultural Program.  And... they also got a chance to test their engineering skills set by participating in a Tower Engineering Design Project in partnership with the National Society of Black Engineers (special thanks to Jada Jamison, UIC College of Engineering Student).. Then, at the end of the day our special guest got the opportunity to express themselves and “bowl - off” a little steam at the UIC Bowling Lanes. Thank you Muhammad University of Islam High School Students for your visit to UIC.
