The University Of Illinois was founded in 1867. And since then, they have grown from a school of 77 students to a university system of nearly 100,000. There are three universities: Urbana-Champaign, Springfield, and Chicago. Urbana-Champaign is the flagship campus, home to about half of the system's student population. And they're also home to The Fighting Illinis, their championship-winning DI sports teams. This vintage University Of Illinois hat, deadstock in excellent condition, is perfect for any fan or alumnus.
