Dear Alumni & Friends,

Greetings! Fall is in full swing at Western Illinois University! The leaves are turning, campus looks beautiful, students are taking mid-terms and our Fighting Leatherneck football team is winning! We will celebrate Military Appreciation Week with many activities in honor of our Veterans and those currently serving our country. Be sure to join us for one or all of the exciting events. Visit here to read about them, including a special Alumni, Friends and Community Social sponsored by the WIU Alumni Association on Thursday, Nov. 8. We are grateful for all our service men and women have done and continue to do for our country.

President Jack Thomas and Mayor Mike Inman will share what has been accomplished over the past year for WIU and Macomb communities! The 2018 Honorary Alumni and Town & Gown Award recipients will be announced that evening.
