Every student knows the place to go to grab a quick bite to eat while on campus.
They also know the place to go to catch a free film, shoot some pool, or bowl.
But what they don’t know, is that under their feet, while they enjoy these pastimes, there is a treasure trove of hands-on activities they can take part in.
Our lager, that art in barrels, hallowed be thy foam.
Thy will be drunk (I will be drunk) at home as I am in taverns.
Give us this day our foamy head, and forgive us our spillage;
as we forgive those who spill against us.
And lead us not to incarceration, but deliver us from hangovers.
For thine is the beer, the ale, and the lager, now and forever more.
—Rev. Bobby Beerman from the Church of Beer: Blessed be the Brew

A purchase proposal was submitted to the council asking that it award the purchase of a new backhoe for the Street Maintenance Department to replace a currently inoperable one.
A small feature about the first day of Autumn on the SIU campus:
The fountain roars a constant stream outside Morris Library.
Students seated only feet away, under the shade of the umbrella tables on the concrete foundation, hardly seem to notice. They are too engaged in conversations or distracted by their electronic devices and study materials to take in the environment.
