Beginning with the November issue of the University’s alumni magazine, Illinois State, alumni will find a new column that will help them reconnect with retired faculty and staff. The “Where Are They Now?” column will begin with an update from Harry Thiel, who served as the student advisor at the Vidette for 20 years. Included with his recollections and current news is contact information, so that he can hear from alums. Look for his story when the magazine delivers in early November and send him a greeting!
