View a map of the intended route, which includes pin points for Universities that are either on the route, nearby, or have expressed interest. This is a great option for members out west, farther north or south to meet IIT along the way in order to help offset the cost of travel.
The price will be $140 per seat round trip. If there's enough interest, IIT will team up with University of Wisconsin Milwaukee and provide a second bus. Please email ASAP if you are interested. Payment is due in full by Friday, December 14th.
