Jake Sheley ’05 and his wife, Lauren, welcomed their daughter, Landry Beth Sheley, on June 6, 2018.
Congratulations, Jake and Lauren, on your Tiny Titan!
We are very sorry to inform you that Professor Elizabeth (Susie) Balser, faculty member in Biology for more than 20 years, passed away last month following an extended illness.
Susie was recognized as an expert on the anatomy of echinoderms. Her passion for invertebrate animals inspired the creation of three new courses at IWU. Both as an instructor and as a research mentor, Susie challenged students to carefully study the natural world and make their own discoveries.
Dr. Lea (Panek) Samartino, Ph.D. (‘05) and Mark Samartino, Esq. (‘06) welcomed Max Stanley to the world on April 26th, 2018.
Congratulations Samartino Family!
David A. Varel ’05 wrote the recently published The Lost Black Scholar: Resurrecting Allison Davis in American Social Thought (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2018).
The book is an intellectual biography of Allison Davis (1902-1983), a pioneering black scholar whose work transformed American social science even as institutional racism marginalized his contributions.
This Tuesday, April 3rd is our day of giving at Illinois Wesleyan and this year’s theme is: Think Bigger!
Not only is Tuesday a day for giving, it’s a day to celebrate IWU and all of the things that make it special. Last year, our class had an impressive 45 donors, let’s try for 50 this year! We contributed $5200 last year. Our goal for this year is $5500! Think of the impact this can make for IWU students and their families!
Help spread the word using #AllInForWesleyan and take advantage of our social media toolkit.
