Went down with my wife for the U of I game against Michigan State. Unfortunately, we lost which put a damper on an otherwise beautiful day. We enjoyed a nice stroll around campus... read more

Lacking the atmosphere of many of the other Big Ten stadiums, but they've had some down years. Luckily, I was up in a suite on a cold day. Staff was excellent.

The outside looks great with the pillars and whatnot. The inside probably would be a little more eventful if the team playing there was a little better.

Went down with my wife for the U of I game against Michigan State. Unfortunately, we lost which put a damper on an otherwise beautiful day. We enjoyed a nice stroll around campus the evening before the game. It is a pretty campus. I have to say it is the first campus I have seen that has a large cemetery... More

Enjoyed a game here, even better that Illini won. But not the same as some of the other Big Ten venues like Madison. Lacking in atmosphere

Not a bad seat for watching the Fighting a Illini for a marching band competition. You cannot bring any food or beverages into the stadium. :-(

Nice stadium. More elevator availability would be nice. The person on the PA has a deep voice, but he does not enunciate...so no one could understand a word he said. The big screen is crisp and clear, but the color is off. It was not ORANGE, it was RED. Too bad the Illini did not win! And, the stands were... More

We were able to tour the stadium at the University of Illinois by the students. I took a couple of videos but I snapped what I could from the videos. There's a lot of history on the walls and school spirit! I enjoyed this opportunity. This is a must see state of the art stadium!

Visited Memorial Stadium for the first time since 2002!! The last time the Bears used the stadium for their home games while Soldier Field was being renovated. This time I was there for a college game. The place was sold out, a first since 201. It was a night game so we didn't have to worry about the sun as... More

This is a beautiful stadium built in 1924 and renovated in 2008. The huge wide screen at the end of the field is fantastic way to watch replays, even if the football game was a disaster. Neat to see a stadium that still has character and history.
