Dear Student Org Leader,
* Want to know why UIC no longer has a football
team or why the University rejected a chance to
have a football field built on South Campus to
share with the Chicago Bears?
* What role did UIC play in the movie Star Wars?
* What was the thought behind A&A, BSB and SES's
bizarre architectural layout? * Did you ever wonder why University Hall is built
Upside Down looking? * Did you ever ask what is meant by things such as
"The Pier Room" or "Circle Campus?" * Have you ever wondered what the requirements were
for UIC College of Medicine in the 1880s? * Has UIC ever faced such dark economic times before?
These and many other fascinating facts can be answered
in a presentation on UIC History from the Office of
the UIC Historian. For years this presentation has
been given to faculty, staff, and alumni audiences.
Now it is available for you and your members.
