Thank-A-Giver Day (TAG Day) is on Monday, February 11. This day provides the IWU campus community with the opportunity to thank the donors who support Illinois Wesleyan. IWU celebrates each year in mid-February because it marks the symbolic point during the academic year – about 70% of the way through – when tuition dollars run out and support from alumni and friends, our endowment, and external grants kicks in for the remainder of the year.

Thank you to all donors who help make the IWU experience possible!

As of September 1, Susan Burlison ’70 and her husabnd, Lee, became residents of Plzeň in the Czech Republic. Their reason for moving 6,000 miles? Three adorable grand children – Ella, William & Marie. They love their new flat. It’s big, sunny and a half block from Republic Square where there are many exciting events. If you are going to be in the Czech Republic, let them know. They love visitors and sightseeing.
