Lobby Day, Springfield, April 9, 2014
President Easter joined students from the three University of Illinois campuses on Lobby Day at the state capitol in Springfield. In addition to meeting Governor Quinn (at center right with the president), the 100+ students spoke with legislators, often from their own districts, on behalf of the University. Alumni, trustees, and University administration meet with legislators in May.
Lobby Day is sponsored by the U of I Alumni Association and Illinois Connection.
