Welcome Message – Fall 2012

To students, faculty and staff:

Welcome to the start of the 2012-13 academic year – the 43rd academic year in UIS history! For those of you who are returning, we are pleased to have you back. To those of you new to the campus, a warm welcome. I’m looking forward to a great year!

I really enjoy the First Week activities at UIS, with so many events perfectly designed for reconnecting with and meeting new colleagues and friends, getting information about programs, events and organizations and just feeling the positive anticipation for the upcoming year. One of those special events is Tuesday – the annual Chancellor’s Picnic – and this is my personal invitation to you for that event. All students, faculty and staff (along with family members) are invited! Please join us at the Colonnade from 4:30 to 6:00 pm. The weather is going to be superb, the atmosphere exciting and there will be plenty of food, beverages and music for our enjoyment. We’ll also have two special guests with us this year – our new University of Illinois President Robert Easter and his wife, Cheryl.

Hope to see you there!
