B LOYAL SOCIETY
The Business Loyal Society
As a recent graduate of the College of Business, you have the
opportunity to make a difference. Although you are building your
career and future, you can make an impact on the College of Business
today through your participation in the life of the institution. As
state support continues to decline, private support from alumni is
critical to maintain and extend the educational excellence we
provide our students. Your yearly contribution as a member of the
B Loyal Society will help build and sustain the tradition of
innovation that is fundamental to the College of Business’s success.

invitations to special College events such as on-campus lecture

significant news and regular interactions with representatives from
the College. Members will also be publicly recognized at College
events and in publications.

"The College of Business at the
University of Illinois provided me with the quintessential
educational environment—academic rigor, boundless social opportunity
and a robust support network—which aptly prepared me to succeed in
business and the world. I envision a College of Business that
affords future students even greater advantages than I enjoyed
during my time there."
