Save the Date for Climb the Tower

Climb the Tower is back by popular demand.

You are invited to join fellow members of the Illinois Tech community on Wednesday, April 4 from 2–4 p.m. in a stair climb from the lobby to the 19th floor of IIT Tower. Come for the climb and stay for the party.

Registration will take place Thursday, March 1 through Wednesday, March 28. Participants must register in advance and complete a Waiver of Liability form. Individuals who do not sign the waiver will not be allowed to climb.

Registration is by individual (no teams), and the first 60 participants to register will receive a gift bag upon completion of their climb. Training assistance and support is available from the Illinois Tech Athletics department. To get started, contact Courtney Priest at or 312.567.7110.

Can’t commit to climbing 19 flights of stairs, but still want to participate? Consider volunteering to cheer on our climbers or help out in some other way during the event. Prizes will be awarded to individual participants and volunteers in a variety of areas, and the department with the most participants will win a prize.

Watch Illinois Tech Today for the registration announcement on or around March 1. For more information, contact Viktoria Rill at or 312.567.3353.
