May the Unofficial force be with you

Dear Great Ones,

You’ve made it to the holy grail of public ivy at the University. If there’s one thing that alumni & students alike can almost all agree on, it’s that Unofficial is awesome. The Daily Illini accurately dubbed it as the “Social Storm” of second semester – a joyous occasion where academics and politics are forgotten while friendships are forged – over ping pong & green beer. My alumni jealousy abroad wishes you young bucks the best of joy and luck avoiding you-know-who. May the Unofficial force be with you, because the basketball boys sure don’t got it! 

Your Official Student Trustee 2004ever
