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.

Go easy on University of Chicago. My niece is trying to get in there. I have not heard yet.

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

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
