It’s Fall Y’all!

As I’ve been driving into campus the last few days, I’ve noticed that Fall has really taken hold. Did you know that the UIS campus is home to over 300 different varieties of trees, shrubs and plants? All of them are lovingly tended by UIS horticulturist, Joan Buckles and her great team. The John Henry sculpture, lovingly known on campus as the “french fries,” is framed here perfectly by a maple tree in full color! Fall is definitely a great time to be part of the UIS community. (By the way, the real name of the John Henry sculpture is "The Dodger" and it was generously donated to us this past Spring by our friends Bob and Ruth Vogele.)
