Re: Enrollment Updates

To be fair. JB Pritzker has known nothing but a life of privilege. So yeah, pretty disheartening, these are our options. These two candidates are why all ballots need a "None of the Above - Start Over" box to check. There's been a push for ranked-choice voting in some states. With our current lineu...

Enrollment Updates

This is a message board is in no way officially tied to the Western Illinois University. People can comment (I believe it's in the bill of rights). Anyway I digress. Just one opinion Bruce Rauner is a piece of garbage. Like a privileged, influenced affluent, never had to put in manual work day in h...

That record seems off
Athletics site says 2-6-1. Illinois State's women's soccer team is 5-4-2.

Re: Facilities Improvements - Misc

I try and stay off the boards other than the Football one. Way too many negative people over here, and my momma taught me if I didn't have anything nice to say then keep my mouth shut. Doesn't always work though, as this post is evidence of ;) I think most of the negative stuff (I assume you mean l...

Danielle Surprenant named Interim AD

Where are we at with the AD search? We really need to name a new one soon. Not that the Interim AD isn't doing OK, but need that Leadership right now to move things forward I haven't heard anything yet and I don't see anything listed on the employment pages for WIU. Might be posted elsewhere, altho...

Facilities Improvements - Misc

Spring game day would be the ideal time to do it. Kind of hard to do on Homecoming with so much going on. ST, regarding the soccer moisture problems next to the Lamoine, I came across this article in the Courier/Star archives from back in 1974. I had to laugh when I read it. The state turned down a...

Re: WIU vs Montana (9/15/2018)

I went with my son to 4 visits to WIU son before he enrolled. 1 Camp, 2 Game day visits and his official visit. Never once have I seen anything but the locker room and the weight room. I think they show the locker room because it's new, and the weight room to prove they have one. They are not at al...

Re: WIU vs Montana (9/15/2018)

I gotta question. Does the Athletics Department have an "Open House" during the year when anyone and everyone can tour the facilities. I would show up for that. Most of us alumni dont even know what we have now. Not that I'm aware of, but you might be able to request a tour if you contact the athle...

Re: WIU vs Montana (9/15/2018)

Maybe its just me, but If you are going to build a whole new West side++ at a cost probably in the neighborhood of $35-40M, it seems to me you should dig just a little bit deeper for another $3-4M to move the track and build a nice soccer/track complex. That was my thought too. Do the track/field s...

Re: WIU vs Montana (9/15/2018)

They also have a much needed football building which we still have to address. The benefits of this would have a positive impact on all athletics and their athletes housed in Western Hall! ;) jc Completely agree! We are in need of serious football facility upgrades. And high tide raises all boats, ...
