Wow, we are not even halfway into the semester and so many crazy things are happening on campus!
First: UIC recreation had RECExperience LIVE last week. There was free rock climbing, fitness class marathons and pretty cool raffles! I was there teaching during the fitness marathon with six other instructors. I stayed the entire time and my body was very sore! It’s amazing how dedicated many of the people were!
Secondly, I was so excited to hear that Campus Programs was hosting LOL @ UIC: free event tonight that features Keenan Thompson! The free show starts at 7 p.m. at the UIC Forum.
UIC undergrads have no idea how good they’ve got it! Back in MY early days at UIC, we did not have A-List celebrities at the annual Spark in the Park….because there WAS NO Spark in the Park. If we wanted to see A-List celebrities….we turned on MTV!
Another great change I have been noticing going on at UIC is a huge push to get students more involved in supporting the athletic department. During my undergrad years, there were no wacky, waving inflatable arm-flailing tubemen to get us pumped up for the big games.
It is pretty cool browsing through my Facebook newsfeed and seeing so many people excited for UIC athletes. Next time, I won’t live vicariously through their Facebook updates, but instead actually go to a game myself!
So are there other excited thing still going on on campus?
There are ALWAYS things going on on campus!
Campus Programs, UIC Campus Rec and UIC’s calendar of events are just a few places to check out if you are looking for something fun, informative or new to do on campus! Take advantage of all UIC has to offer because you guys have it oh-so easy!
