Happy New Year!

Hey everybody!

I hope everyone had a restful break and a pleasant new year. We’re still a couple of weeks away from the start of the semester, but I wanted to let everyone know of some things that are going on this semester.

Activity Day- Tuesday, January 26th 11-4
This is like quad day, only inside. We’ll have a booth set up in the Illini Union and several club members will be available to explain the skydiving process and answer any specific questions you may have about becoming involved with the Falling Illini. Stop by and introduce yourself.

Aviation Career Fair- Monday, February 22 530-9
This event is open to Aviation students only. The career fair offers students the opportunity to meet with employers from many of the largest aviation companies about internships and job opportunities. Why is the Falling Illini there? Well, once a pilot has a commercial rating, he or she becomes eligible to become a jump pilot. While the Falling Illini does not represent any dropzone or skydiving company, we have tons of experience with jump pilots and can answer some questions about the field.

Scholar Exploration Day- Monday, March 1 1030-1115
This event is targeted at freshman and sophomores in high school. The day-long event is meant to familiarize students with our campus in an attempt to increase interest in the University as a whole. The Falling Illini will be presenting a 45 minute presentation about our organization and the RSO opportunities available at U of I.

While we do not have any dates set for sure, we will be back to jumping as soon as the semester starts. Stay tuned for more information regarding upcoming trip dates as well as several social events for regular members. As always, please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. I look forward to seeing many of you in the coming semester.
