Talk: "Hangouts, Haunts, and Hijinks"

Much has changed since the first students arrived on campus in 1868. But one thing has remained constant: students have always found innovative ways to let off steam. Join retired University of Illinois Alliance Vice President Joe Rank for an entertaining presentation. Hangouts, Haunts and Hijinks at the Alice Campbell Alumni Center, 601 S. Lincoln Avenue in Urbana.

Come early or stay late for a guided tour of the center’s new Richmond Family Welcome Gallery, which features interactive exhibits that showcase the rich history of the University of Illinois and its contributions to society.

This talk is co-sponsored by the Spurlock Museum and is part of the Museum’s Third Thursday series highlighting people, places, and events in University of Illinois history.

Please note that this program does NOT take place at the Spurlock Museum.
