50th Anniversary Alumni Memories

50th Anniversary, Bold Legacy. Bright Future.

UIS is celebrating its 50th Anniversary throughout the 2020-2021 academic year. Over the last 50 years, many memories have been made on the Sangamon State University/University of Illinois Springfield campus. We’ve asked alumni to share their college memories with us through an online survey.

Enjoy their stories! We hope you’ll be inspired to share your own SSU/UIS experiences. Click on the link that corresponds with your graduation year to take the survey and tell your story.
