Happy first day of summer, Illini! ☀️⠀
Today, the Beckhenge sculpture will mark the official beginning of summer. When the sun reaches its highest point at 12:54 p.m., the shadow of the spire will strike the center of the nearest fountain. The Beckhenge is located just south of the Beckman Institute on the North Quad.

Every time you turn on an LED light, you can thank an Illini. 💡⠀
A lab on campus will now celebrate the legacy of Nick Holonyak Jr., an emeritus professor who invented the world's first LED.
Our favorite movie theater 🎬⠀
If you're on campus this summer, make sure to catch a movie on the Main Quad during the Summer Quad Cinema Series, sponsored by the @illiniunionboard.
They play every Thursday night starting at 9 p.m.
BIRTHDAY QUEEN 👑⠀
Happy 90th birthday, Alma Mater!
Illini have a rich history of combining an Illinois education with military service. 🇺🇸⠀
The Armory was built in 1914 for military training. Today, it houses the offices of several #ILLINOIS
departments and units, including the Army ROTC, Air Force ROTC, Marine Corps, and Navy ROTC. The programs allow students to connect military science classes to their academic major.⠀
Not all heroes wear capes. Some ride bicycles. 🚲⠀
These Illini with @illini4000
are biking from New York to San Francisco to raise money for cancer. Swipe through to see their arrival when they passed through Champaign-Urbana this week.
Our newest Illini are here for registration, and they're already on our Instagram. We'd say it's going okay so far. 😉 Welcome, #ILLINOIS2023
