The November issue of the University’s alumni magazine, Illinois State, has delivered and is now available online. Check out the story behind the Teacher’s Regiment, which consisted of ISU students who opted to serve during the Civil War instead of staying on campus.

Other stories in this issue include a look at the mock trial team, which consistently shines in national competitions; the work of educator Kari Dunn Buron ’73, M.S. ’80, who has found a teaching approach to reach autistic children; and the high-tech science done by reproductive biologist David Wildt ’72, who has helped bring China’s giant panda back from extinction.

You’ll find Web extras online, including the Reggie Reads column that showcases books authored by alumni. Take a minute to blog about the articles or to complete the online survey. Your opinion is valued!
