Alma Mater dedicated (w/video)

 After a nearly two-year absence, the beloved Alma Mater was returned to the Illinois campus in April. Friday’s ceremony was a birthday party of sorts for the soon-to-be 85-year-old sculpture. There was a card people could sign and cupcakes to eat. Music Professor Ollie Watts Davis led the crowd to “Hail to the Orange.”

We've got the story both in video and audio.
