To all our new MechSE students: welcome to Illinois! And for those returning, welcome back!  
We’re two weeks into the semester and, for many of us, right back in the swing of things.  Here are some upcoming events to think about planning ahead for:
Sunset over University Ave. in Champaign, first week of school.

Here’s to a strong start of another semester, or first semester as the case may be.
