Univ. of Illinois Funding Loss Over Illiniwek!

I did an earlier post on the loss of the Univ. of Illinois mascot, Chief Illiniwek.

Well, as I predicted, the University is losing money, and it looks to be huge.

In the case of my high school group (with a number of U of I Engineers) we have taken a great approach....We are all taking our money and forming a scholarship to U of I through our high school. Thus, we do NOT support U of I in its alumni association, but still get our kids off to this great school. Sofar about 30 of us are involved...and many are just Illinois folk, not grads of U of I...myself included.

It will be interesting to see where this leads.
