English House gets three new squirrels

Quad squirrels are a favorite of Illinois Wesleyan students, so much so that the squirrels have appeared in The Argus student newspaper without doing anything other than looking cute.

But a family of squirrels has made their home in the big hackberry tree by the English House back door, and their litter is news. Three baby squirrels were born in May, after most students left for the summer. One of them has a white tail, which makes the squirrel distinctive from all others on campus.

And you thought nothing ever happened while you were away!
