UIUC Student Day at the Capitol

Illinois Connection hosted its annual “Student Day at the Capitol” event facilitated by the Student Advocacy Coalition, bringing together students from all three U of I campuses.  The main objective this year was advocating for funding public higher education in the state of Illinois.  Students met with representatives and senators of the state legislature to spread this message, including our own Ryan Rooney seen talking with State Representative Carol Ammons, who represents Urbana. There is another trip planned for May 10th, details can be found at http://www.cvent.com/events/2017-day-at-the-capitol-springfield/event-summary-81fff9021b7447dda7b410f3f9ab31e8.aspx
