Ellen DeGeneres Hints at Surprise for the University of Illinois

What does the talk show host have planned for students at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign? We don't know—do you?

Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres has something special in store Monday for the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, but she's not talking—except for some heavy hinting on her Twitter account.

DeGeneres Saturday tweeted to fans, "I hope everyone’s having a great weekend! Especially the people at The University of @Illinois_alma. Big things happening Monday."

Then Sunday, she followed up with another mysterious note urging students to show up on the Quad at 3 p.m. Her latest tweet told students to come dressed as your favorite movie character, "and you could win big."

Don't be surprised if you see flocks of students dressed in Chief Illiniwek attire, as the former symbol's Facebook page nudged fans to grab their best Chief wear.
