University students can utilize services from the Jesse White Secretary of State Mobile Unit March 29 in room 407 of the Illini Union from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

University students will be able to take advantage of office services from the Jesse White Secretary of State Mobile Unit on March 29 in room 407 of the Illini Union from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The Mobile Unit will include several different services, including vehicle sticker sales, organ and tissue donor registration, vehicle title and registration, state identification and driver’s license renewal, replacement and corrections and more.

Jesse White said in a press release that this partnership between the Secretary of State’s Office and the University of Illinois shows how convenient office service transactions on campus can be.

Dave Druker, Secretary of State spokesman, said that these services come to campus on a regular basis and will return on April 26.

“We’ve found it very successful and we hope it’s helpful to the college communities,” Druker said.

The Mobile Unit’s purpose is to bring services closer to home for students, Druker said. The Secretary of State office recognizes that it is often hard for students to travel out to the off-campus Champaign facility.

For those looking to express their University spirit, the Mobile Unit will also offer University of Illinois collegiate license plates.

“I encourage students, faculty and staff to purchase a collegiate license plate to support a student scholarship fund as well as express pride for the school,” White said.

A percentage of the money goes to creating the license plates and the rest is donated to the University. Other state schools, like the University of Illinois at Chicago and Illinois State University, have their own special license plates.

“These are things that need to be done, if you have a car,” Druker said. “We’re trying to make the services as easy as possible for people.”
