The largest Christian convention in the United States. It is held every three to four years at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Originally held at the University of Toronto, it was moved to Illinois in 1948. Sponsored by InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, the conference features hundreds of seminars and exhibits dealing primarily with evangelizing and missions. It is held over a five day period during winter break.
Some of the students have a problem with the university renting out their dorm rooms to the convention so they may house the 15,000 or so attendees... Very understandable. No one wants total strangers sleeping in their bed and fiddling with their things.
