The Class of 2020: Part 2

Sharing some of your favorite moments and memories.


All of you deserved more from the end of your college career.

Hopefully this provides something good.

If you are — or know — any seniors at the University of Illinois who have had their senior year cut short, send their stories our way. We want to share as many of them as possible, because all of you deserve your moment in the sun.

Read Part 1 here.

Let’s start with a few Marching Illini seniors, who, while they had their Senior Day in the fall, many still missed out on a chance to cheer on the Illini one more time in the Big Ten and NCAA Tournaments.

Or the President of Illini Pride, who sat through far too many losses to count — but also still made memories for a lifetime.

Not every memory is sports related. Some could be the library to the bar in consecutive nights, or knowing how important a degree from Illinois is.

And, if this is the last part of this little project we do, we’ll end it with TCR’s very own. You’ve seen Jacob at every game for every sport, being the first one at new KAMs, and being a model Illini.

And it sucks. It does. But, he’ll always be an Illini.

Send us your stories and memories on Twitter or Facebook and we’ll shout them out here.
