Interfraternity Council stands with survivors

Three Western Illinois University chapters of the Interfraternity Council hung banners from their houses Thursday to stand with rape and sexual assault victims.

Best of all: the property allows for a better financial model than 611 (all those bedrooms). The undergraduates will move into the new house this Spring, and 611 W. Adams will be sold - most likely to a younger fraternity.

Now, we need to get 830 N Avery move-in ready. To that end, we are calling on all alumni to give your time and money in the following ways:
