UI Alumni Assoc (UIAA) Board Chairman, William Stratton (Bill) was in town for a few days and met up with us on Aug 26 for a quick TGIF drink at Zentro IFC. The night was highlighted by the outdoor heat and some amazing stories and updates from Bill including one about the history-making around-the-world flight by an Illinois alumnus, Dr. Bo Zhang (full story here).

On 31 May 2016, we are honored to attend the 2015 Madhuri & Jagdish N. Seth Int’l Alumni Award Ceremony, honoring Dr. Geoffrey Yeh, an Illinois alumnus.
Dr. Yeh attended UIUC in 1950 and received a B.S in Civil Engineering (Illinois). Since then the Yeh Family has supported the school for many years, including M.T. Geoffrey Yeh Graduate Research Fellowships in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE), the M.T. Geoffrey Yeh Endowed Chair in CEE, and the M.T. Geoffrey Yeh Student Center at the CEE.
It was an intimate event where our recent graduates get to spend time with Dr. Yeh and also Dean Cangellaris. We would like to congratulate Dr. Yeh again for all his support to the univeristy.
We will be hosting a dinner for Dean Cangellaris of Engineering who will be in Hong Kong for a few days end of May. Let us know if you would like to join the dinner! Email our president,Drina Yue, below to RSVP (Limited Seats).
