    • We bought our first plan for our youngest son when we he was in grade school. That has proven to be the best investment we have ever made including our 529 plans and any IRA's. We were even able to use part of it for his doctorate degree. Our experience was so positive that we have bought a plan for one of our grandchildren. Thanks College Illinois!

    • We invested in College Illinois! when our daughter was in grade school. It's the best decision we made. Tuition at SIU was paid for effortlessly… never had a problem. We would recommend it to any young parent out there. Start early… things change as the years go by!

    • We opened a College Illinois! account for our daughter Nora back in 1999. She just graduated from Eastern Illinois University with no debt, tuition and fees all paid. It was the best decision we ever made!
