Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) -- Fall High School Visitation (HSV)

SHPE UIUC is excited to announce the return of Fall HSV! What is HSV you might ask? HSV is an opportunity for prospective Latinx and Hispanic juniors and seniors to become familiar with campus and get an introduction to STEM and The Grainger College of Engineering at Illinois. During your time on campus, there will be informational sessions, tours, workshops, community-building activities, and meet & greets with various campus organizations and staff.

This year we will be hosting two, one-day HSV sessions on Saturday, October 22 and Sunday, October 23. They will be identical, so you can choose whichever day works best for you. We ask that you find your own transportation to and from campus, but if that is not possible, please let us know and we can provide accommodations.  Thank you for your interest and we are excited to meet you all on campus!
