Happy Illinois Homecoming!

Happy Illinois Homecoming! This is the one of the many times of year I love – the fall leaves are changing colors (despite the few snow flurries I saw this week), football season and tailgating are in full swing (despite the wins and losses)….and the University of Illinois is gearing up for Homecoming on campus this weekend!  

Campus is beginning to buzz, banners are being hung to welcome alumni to campus, fraternities and sororities are sprucing up their houses to welcome alumni home and Orange and Blue attire is the “in” thing to wear! The ACES Student Advancement committee helped to decorate the atrium of the ACES Library and decorated Campus Florist windows on Green Street…so if you are on campus this weekend stop by and take a look!

The College of ACES is also represented in the 2013 Illinois Homecoming Court – ACES students include:  Caroline Cavallo from Staunton, IL; Jacob Ekstrand from Yates City, IL; Kyle Granger from East St. Louis, IL; and Kurt Hansen from Lake Zurich, IL – be sure to watch for them at the Illinois Homecoming Parade and Pep Rally on Friday night beginning at 6:00 p.m. and on the field during the Illinois vs. Michigan State game.

I hope you find fond memories of your time at Illinois, whether you are back on campus or at celebrating from afar. We would love to see your photos showing your Illini spirit, so we can post them on social media to celebrate our ties that bind us all to the University of Illinois. Send your photos to Tina Veal, ACES Alumni Director at vealt@illinois.edu.

Best Wishes and GO ILLINI!
