After reading the age post I saw three of us have connections to U of I. I wonder how many of us have alumni connections we are not aware of?

DH went to Drexal University in Philly, UW Madison, and U of I Urbana Champaign.

I went to Montgomery County Community College in Blue Bell, PA (dental hygiene)

Undergrad: ILLINI, baby!
Grad School: National-Louis U, and Benedictine (GO EAGLES!) (I recently spent a summer studying at App State and loved it. Go Apps!)

DH went to Circle (AKA: UIC, U of I at Chicago) for undergrad and grad school.

University of Miami for undergrad and Nova Southeastern University for grad.

I may be adding University of Florida. I am considering going back for a Master in Accounting. I work in the governmental sector now and would really love to understand governmental accounting. Or go back to Nova for a Master in Healthcare Administration. I don't know yet but I'm getting an itch to go back to school.

MissS--We're just outside the city. But nevermind, I was just acknowledging that we're near each other, no biggie. Good luck with your studies.

I'm an alumni of Montclair State University...

I've attended a few colleges though.

Originally went Temple University and I stayed there for 3 years.

Then I transferred to Montclair State where I graduated from.

After that I went to Bucks County Community College for my pre-req's into nursing school.

I'm now at the University of Medicine and Dentistry School of New Jersey and I'll be graduating in May.

Finally, I'm either going to go to UMDNJ in Stratford for my MSN or to Jefferson in Philadelphia.

No it's neat! I have been hoping we'd have a Chi meet up eventually, actually. But I have yet to visit Evanston, which is a bit of an embarrassment as an NU student. I will be taking an MBA class up there this semester, so I'll finally know what's good up there!

How 'bout them Hawkeyes, MissStepcut?!
Class of '85 and I was born in Boyd Tower when my parents were both there.
(And I have a cousin who is a Northwestern grad.)

I've been to one Chicago GTG. It was fun! We should plan another one when the next gem show comes to town.

Evanston is a great place. I like it a lot, but I prefer Chicago. :bigsmile:
My mom is a Northwestern Alum for undergrad and grad school. We went to a lot of sad football games when I was a child. :cheeky:

How does one know that "The U of I " refers to , "The University of Illinois" and not, "The University of Iowa" or, "The University of Idaho"? How are those other two schools abbreviated?

Davidson College for undergrad, New York Medical College in Valhalla, NY for my MD. And, in two years, Yale for residency (although it's not a degree, but I'm counting it since it's 4 years of education/training!)

Well...I was a tour guide at OSU, so I know the answer :)
Ohio State was originally named Ohio Agricultural and Mechanical College (Ohio A&M) and back in the 1800's they changed the name to reflect that the university was growing and more comprehensive. In a move to separate it from the other universitys popping up in the state, they officially named it The Ohio State University to show its noteriety. For a really long time there was no mention of the "the" but in recent years (starting in the 80's) they changed the logo to get away from just being OSU, since there are other OSU's in the US. The new logo contained the 'the' to mark its prestige as "the" university for the state of Ohio. Yes, it sounds pretentious, and gets a lot of eye rolls, but its part of the pride and history of the university taking its place in Ohio.

Thanks, Charbie! I've always wondered what the deal was. Football games and draft day are going to be filled with much less mystique for me now! :cheeky:

My DH and I are both graduates of University of Illinois -----Champaign/Urbana...... Can't believe there are so many on pricescope!

Wonder if any of the graduates of U of I were in a sorority/fraternity? It is so huge at Illinois. My husband and I were both in a fraternity/sorority. I grew up in Chicago and miss it so much. I moved away years ago. Family is still there so I visit frequently!

Indiana State University--Go Sycamores!!!

I grew up and now live in Indiana University territory now. Go Hoosiers!

Those of you who attended several schools, do not lose heart: my dad went to Franklin, Purdue, I.U., and Daytona Beach J.Cl (not in that order) in between serving our country during Vietnam. My mother attended college for a couple years in WI...I was the first person in my immediate family to obtain an undergrad (4 year) degree.

Also: GDI here. Just thought I'd throw that out there because I know that's the next question! Ha!

ETA: my dad was a Sigma Nu at Purdue and I.U. He encouraged me to go greek and I rushed for one night two years in a row and just couldn't do it. :wavey: My mother always says she made me too independent.
