Dear Parents and Families,

It’s a pleasure for me and Ero to welcome you to the University of Illinois Chicago, better known around the world as UIC. Parents and family members are an integral part of our community and have a special role in partnering with us to support your student’s success. Our goal is to set the stage for your student’s best possible academic and growing experience, and we will make every effort to ensure they are able to take advantage of all the many resources and activities available.

UIC also has dedicated resources to assist parents and family members with any issues that arise, from academic assistance, financial aid, technology and our health care insurance program among many other programs. With 16 colleges and countless disciplines, there is something for everyone at UIC. We also want to encourage you to join us at UIC for our Family Weekend, our sporting events, lectures and our music and theatre performances.

As parents of two college students ourselves, we understand the importance that families play in our student’s lives during their time on and off campus, and we are always proud to welcome each new class to UIC.

We look forward to your student’s growth and to their graduation as UIC alumni.

Best wishes,

Michael and Ero Amiridis
