Things to do


UIS is equally proud of the caring attitudes of our athletes. In 2010-2011, Prairie Stars athletes donated hundreds of hours of work to charitable projects including: Holiday Stars Canned Food Drive, Ball-Chatham Fun Fair, Habitat for Humanity, Ronald McDonald House, and Make-A-Wish Foundation.

In 2010-2011, UIS athletes were named GLVC Players of the Week and several players were All-Conference selections in their respective sports. A total of 93 athletes were named to the Athletic Director’s Academic Honor Roll for having GPAs of 3.0 or better. Of those 93, 31 had a GPA of 3.5 and six earned 4.0.

Feel the promise of UIS athletics and build on our past (we have three national championships). The Prairie Stars compete in NCAA Division II as a member of the highly competitive Great Lakes Valley Conference. Your teammates will share your passion for sport and your coaches will truly care about your success as both an athlete and a student.
