We have Spirit
Week of May 29-June 5, 2017
) There is a growing group of Saluki Spirit Liaisons represent their Dept, unit, campus office, student group, community business, civic group, etc. There isn't a lot involved with the Liaison job - basically just forwarding on information received from Dr. Anton on a weekly basis. The idea is to get Liaisons for all campus and community groups, so that when the Announcements come through, they are coming from someone whose name is familiar to those they are sending them to - basically a grass-roots movement. If you know of anyone who might be interested in serving in this role, please have them contact Dr. Anton.
#SalukiFriday is upon us again: remember to wear your Saluki gear on Fridays!
Also, send pics of your group(s) to Dr. Anton, as well as Randy Johnson at 710: firstname.lastname@example.org Photos will be featured in future Saluki Spirit Announcements as well as on 710's Facebook and Twitter platforms.
This week we visited the folks at the Saluki Green Action Team at the Innovation and Sustainability HUB (at the SIUC Student Center). Those pictures will be up on Friday on the "SIUC Department of Kinesiology" Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/SIUC-Department-of-Kinesiology-201366063240550/posts_to_page/) and on our NEW Twitter page: https://twitter.com/SalukiSpirit Swing by and give us a follow@SalukiSpirit
The winner of the Facebook Poll on the Dept. of Kinesiology page for the pics taken at Phoenix Cycles in Carbondale last week is at the end of the Announcements
