Quality Time with Our Students

Earlier this week I had three great opportunities to spend some quality time with Eastern students: An evening dinner -- part of the "Charleston Chew" program -- with several students from Pemberton Hall, a "Pancakes with the Prez" breakfast with students in Taylor Hall dining, and my regular meeting with student government executives.

These are always energizing experiences as I hear what students are passionate about, their plans for the semester and for life after graduation, and what improvements we can make at EIU. Getting together with EIU students is the best way for anyone to understand how they are changing the campus and will one day change the world.
