Here’s an event that new transfers should try and take advantage of! Even if you’ve been here for a few semesters, you should check this out! Tours of Memorial Stadium are being held tomorrow, April 24, 2013! The first tour is at 11 AM and the second tour is at 1 PM. Each tour should last about an hour. Come see behind the scenes of the Fighting Illini’s field!
If you are interested, please meet by the Grange statue on the West side of Memorial Stadium (which is the side facing First St.) at least 5-10 minutes before your tour begins.
Parking will be available in Lot 38 also called the “Blue Lot”, which is the “Northeast Quad” lot of Assembly Hall. This lost is accessible from 4th St. and is located on 4th and Kirby.
It’s been awhile since our last blog post so I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the semester that is quickly coming to an end! Time flies!
I wanted to give all you TAG members a little update of what has been going on with our involvement at Thomas Paine Elementary School. In addition to all of the lovely volunteers who spend some time at the school throughout the week, we did have some members volunteer at a carnival held at the school.
On Friday March 22nd, a group of TAG members volunteered for a couple of hours at the carnival. Our volunteers had a blast helping out with games and activities for the kids which was a huge hit with both TAG members and the students! Both the week before AND the week after I had students I work with talking about how much fun they were going to have/had at the carnival!
Sam was kind enough to pass along a word from the principal of the school who wished to thanks those who volunteered as well as those who dedicate their time during the week! Our organization is one she hopes to continue to be able to work with!
