We have Spirit
#SalukiFriday is upon us again: remember to wear your Saluki gear on Fridays!
) 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.

WINNER OF THIS WEEK'S FACEBOOK PICTURE POLL: This week's "action event" for the Saluki Green Action Team is conservation of energy by turning off lights in empty rooms. On #SalukiFriday at the Innovation and Sustainability HUB at the SIUC Student Center, we thought we would take it a step further by unplugging a few things. Concerned that he'll lose some important work on his computer, Saluki Green Action Team member Andrew Aaflaq tries to slow our roll...
