Like back-to-school sales, one of the signs of a new semester is upon us – the annual Kickoff Que, Sunday, Aug. 18.

Sponsored by Diversity Advocacy, the Que is a multicultural celebration for campus. Featuring free food and a live DJ, the barbeque will highlight student organizations that work with underrepresented groups.

The back-to-school event will begin at 4 p.m. at the courtyard between the Bone Student Center and the Bowling Billiards Center. Participants must bring their valid Illinois State I.D. to attend. Faculty and staff are welcome.

In case of inclement weather, the location will be moved to the Brown Ballroom. For additional information, call Diversity Advocacy at (309) 438-8968.
