A Shared University

School is out and the birds are chirping, so is there any reason for students to stay on campus during this time? As you walk around The University of Illinois you will notice all of the wildlife and natural beauty. They will also see many college students walking about. But why is that?

So far, the summer of 2017 has been very green and this is most seen on the campus of the University of Illinois. Just taking a walk through the flower beds,(Sound Bite) one can see all of the animals that call the university home. The large trees provide shade to those going for a walk around the quad as well as shelter for the wildlife.

Many students can be seen feeding and interacting with the wildlife on campus.

It is also one of the most beautiful times of the year, and the well kept campus (Sound Bite) (insert picture here) provides a certain energy to many of the students and educators. This may be one of the major reasons why some of the students choose to stay after classes end.
