#mysiutradition has always been the Sunset Concerts series! From working behind the scenes to now enjoying the shows, summers in Carbondale will always hold a special place in my heart.
#mysiupride is being a mentor to current students and young alumni. Seeing our Salukis succeed across the world is a powerful testament to the education SIU provides.
