To students, faculty and staff:
Welcome to the start of the 2016-17 academic year at this Springfield campus of the University of Illinois! I hope you enjoy the short video below… and don’t forget the annual Chancellor’s Welcome Picnic is tomorrow, August 23rd. All students, faculty, and staff (along with family members) are invited! Please join us near the Colonnade from 4:30-6:00 pm. There will be plenty of great food, beverages, music, and conversation. The weather and the atmosphere should be superb. See you there!
