About these Photos

On August 20, 2006 our beloved Prairie Star Mascot, Blue, attended the 2006 Illinois State Fair as a part of Campustown.

Blue enjoyed meeting people from all over the state, and walking around the fairgrounds to see everything that was going on!

The UIS Cheerleaders also joined Blue for the day, and performed outside over the lunch hour.
