Nothing like a good picnic

I don’t know about you, but I’ve always enjoyed a good picnic and Tuesday’s UIS Chancellor's Welcome Back picnic ranks right up there as one of the best! We had food, music, laughter, great conversations …. and a little spontaneous dancing! We even had one country western song played (at the Chancellor's request) by our talented DJ, Jaime M Cruz. (Thanks, Jaime!) A real spirit of community was so obvious as I walked around talking with students, faculty and staff. I look forward to many more community gatherings during the coming year. Thanks to all who participated for helping us set a new attendance record at the Chancellor's Welcome Back Picnic. Best wishes to all for a great semester!
