See for yourself why so many say #YestoUIS and hear from our students about what “Leadership lived” means to them and what advice they have for you!

  • Our Getting to Know UIS video series is a great way to get an insider’s look on the resources and services UIS has to offer students.
  • Check out our Why Choose UIS video series to hear directly from current students about the features that attracted them to UIS. And then head over to our Student Features playlist to learn about our Prairie Stars a little more in depth. From musical scholars to aspiring politicians and everything in between, the UIS family is a diverse and talented bunch!
  • We love being a part of the Springfield community, and so does our beloved mascot, Orion. Check out his recent tour of popular Springfield locations – we love Lincoln around here as well as our locally owned coffees shops, the popular downtown farmer’s market and much more!
