Dear Students,

I’ve just come in from a walk around Quad Day activities. And as I hope you’ll see in this short video, it just isn’t Illinois without all of you here.

I know the beginning of classes on Monday officially opens the new academic year here, but to me, nothing captures the spirit of the occasion like the energy, excitement and fun chaos of Quad Day.

All of us on the faculty and staff are very, very happy to see you this week.

Whether you are a returning student or joining us for the very first time, welcome to a new year at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.


Robert J. Jones
