View of the Main Quad at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign campus
Established in 1837, this high-ranking public university with locations in Chicago and central Illinois is noted for its scientific research and Nobel- and Pulitzer Prize-winning alumni. During a visit to the campus, I was given a tour by a friend who is a U of I student.
One of my favorite areas was the Main Quad – a large lawn with tree-lined alleys, extending from the Illini Union. The building houses student organizations, event facilities, plus a bowling alley, cafe, and hotel.
