In his welcome message for Spring semester 2018, President Thomas said, "In our quest to become the premier institution of higher education in Illinois."

Somewhere there is a missing sense of reality.

You must be proud. I'm sure she'll get in if shes anything like her Purple Uncle.

She will have to find her own niche, Atom Bomb has already been done (class project I think).

Guess it is all semantics! As far as I am concerned, I would like to see WIU be one of the premier universities in Illinois and the midwest. We do have some dynamite programs. ;) jc
