Re: 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...

Re: Men's Golf

Men's Golf has a fall season. No coaching staff is listed on the Golf website. Lia and Holly are covering it for now. The guys love Lia, but admin claims to want a full men's coach. One asst and one grad asst would be perfect and cost much less than a men's head coach, plus players on both teams wo...

Re: WIU eliminating funding for WIUM/WIUW (our local public radio station)

Nowhere in the Tri-State's mission statement does it support that of Western's own mission statement. And as can be seen by the success and excitement of Western's own TV, radio, and newspaper, student's get plenty of opportunity and truly excel when they enter the workforce. http://www.wiu.edu/news...

Re: 2018/2019 Budget/Funding

Noticed this come through today: https://macombnewsnow.com/macomb-news/379299 It's very confusing the way it's written though. Do we get $57M or $112k, or something else? I don't really know what's going on with that. Anyone else have any ideas? I read it we get about 1/2 of what we need. We get $5...
