If you'd been a student at the University of Illinois in 1868, it might have been a little easier to afford college as tuition was just $15 a year. But the increase in tuition has developed University of Illinois into an impressive school that houses one of the largest library collections of any public university in the world with over 22 million items. Get bored in a seemingly endless library? The school is a founding member of the Big Ten conference, so go join in with some friends at the next game, and make sure you're wearing a retro Illinois Football Tee from Tailgate.
