Week of May 8-15-2017

#SalukiFriday is upon us again: remember to wear your Saluki gear on Fridays!

  1. ) 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.

  2. #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: randyj@seventen.com Photos will be featured in future Saluki Spirit Announcements as well as on 710's Facebook and Twitter platforms.

  3. This week we dropped in on the Saluki Football 2017 Poster Shoot. 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 informal Facebook Poll for the pics taken with The Dept. of Animal Science, Food, & Nutrition (at the SIUC Swine Center) last week is at the end of the Announcements.
