Love For EIU

Posted:

CHARLESTON- Instead of a "rally", it was a celebration of love and support for Eastern Illinois University Sunday afternoon.
Old Main was the venue for another gathering of EIU supporters. 
Students, faculty, Alum's, the mayor of Charleston and the President of EIU, David Glassman were all in attendance to once again ban together in for the love of a university that has been servicing the young minds of Illinois since 1895. 
President David Glassman said, "I mean you are coming out here students, staff, community members today simply to celebrate and say thank you EIU."
The university could possibly lay off 200 civil service employees if no budget has been met by March.
