Dear Friends,

We’re in between winter break and spring break at IWU. Remember those days?

Speaking of remembering, you can help The Ames Library Archives.

Homecoming Take a minute to browse the image collection and see if you recognize anyone. We continue to look for names, years and pertinent details about these photos in order to better archive past events. If you know any details about the photographs, email Please help if you can!

As I travel around the country, so many of you are always curious about what’s happening on campus. In our attempt to keep you connected on a more regular basis, I am going to include you in receiving the Campus Weekly, which goes out to everyone on campus each Monday morning. It is full of upcoming events on campus, Titans in the News, feature stories, sports updates, faculty presentations and so much more. It’s really a way to make you feel more connected in almost real time. I think you’ll enjoy it. Let me know what you think and watch for it every Monday!

On Monday of this week, we took all the senior theater majors and faculty to Chicago for the Senior Soiree and Showcase. They performed for our theater alumni and guests at Theater Wit. You can see pictures. They sure did make the audience proud of the talent Illinois Wesleyan continues to produce from our School of Theatre Arts!

Lastly, March 5 is the deadline to submit your recommendation for our Distinguished Alumni Awards. Please recommend someone you think is deserving of this recognition at Homecoming. It’s a simple nomination form that you can find at

If you live in the San Francisco area, Chicagoland, Naples, Fla. or in Bloomington -- see you soon!!
