1.) Illini Union Specials

Let’s be honest, who doesn’t like food? Better yet, who doesn’t like a sale?

On Mom’s Weekend, you get to go to your favorite food spots at the union and leave smiling about how much you saved! The union is offering 50 percent off any sweets at Einstein, a family deal at Sbarro’s Pizza, and more. So if your taste buds are calling for your attention, then the Illini Union is the perfect place to dine with your mom.

2.) Bowling or 5K Run

Who doesn’t like a little competition every now and then? If you come from an athletic family, then challenging your mom in a game (or three) of bowling is the best way to go. It could be a winner-takes-all situation. Another solution for those competitive nerves is a race where everyone wins. This 5K run is open to anyone and serves gratitude to our Illini veterans.

Find these events here and here.

6.) Your Own Mini Concert

Maybe not literally, but who knows what a night of karaoke can do for your singing career? That is why the Illini Union is hosting a Mom’s Night Out, Karaoke Edition.

Have a favorite song, or better yet an original? Make the stage your spotlight and the university’s campus your musical gift. With no RSVP needed, the only requirement is your attendance.

Find it here.
