ECE faculty run for student support

Andrew Singer (left) and Naresh Shanbhag.Six ECE faculty took their love of running and used it to encourage student participation in the ECE building campaign. These six were all running in the Illinois Marathon. Teaming up with the ECE Student Advancement Committee, they participated in a fundraiser geared to current students. In the end, fundraiser brought in over $600 for the new ECE building. And one of the faculty ended up wearing a wig and cape as he ran along Green Street. See our online story to find out more.


We continue to seek support from alumni and friends to help us achieve our fundraising goal.  Visit the Building Campaign for ECE ILLINOIS site to “Do your bit.”
