Alumnae/i-Student Reception a Success!
Thank you to everyone who assisted with and attended
our reception last week at Woman Made Gallery, housed in the first floor
of the Keith Mansion in Chicago's Historic Prairie Avenue District.
It was a fantastic venue for the event - a string quartet played softly
while alums and students mixed and mingled over cocktails and hors d'ouevres
while viewing the exhibit "Conflict/Resolution" and other gallery items.
Judge Ilana Diamond Rovner, from the U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals,
was especially delighted and thanked us for such a wonderful time.
Thanks especially to Beth Miller, Director of
Special Events, for suggesting the gallery and coordinating all of the
logistics of the event. Thanks also to the following student members who
volunteered to help during the reception: Joy O'Shell, Kristen McAhren,
Bethany Schols, Darcee Young, Colette Matusinec, Pam Quigley, Darby Carley,
and Michele Katz.
We are also happy to announce that we received
$555 in donations to our Fellowship Fund from various alums and friends
before and during the reception. These funds will be matched and
help fund a summer fellowship for a deserving WIL member in financial need
who will be volunteering at a public service agency over the summer.
(For details about the fellowships, please come to our February general
a Great Outline? Please donate it to WIL!
WIL has a bank of outlines prepared by Chicago-Kent students for first-year
and upperclass classes. But in order to keep our bank current, we
need outlines donated each semester. If you've created great outlines
for any of your classes, please consider donating them to WIL. These
outlines are then available to dues-paying WIL members for future semesters.
To help save some trees, outlines will be accepted in electronic form only.
Please just e-mail WIL at firstname.lastname@example.org
with your outlines, telling us the class, the professor, the textbook(s)
used in class, the semester & year, your name, and the program in which
the outline is written (e.g. WordPerfect 7.0, Word 7). If you have
any questions about our outline bank, please
click here or e-mail Sita Balthazar-Thomas, our Secretary, at email@example.com.
