Quad Day Edition

The school year officially kicks off with this monumental tradition.

Deadline: Aug. 12, 2019
Publication: Aug. 23, 2019

Nearly 20,000 University of Illinois students flock to to the Main Quad the day before school starts to learn about student organizations. These organizations line the sidewalks of the Quad with exhibits, and The Daily Illini is there to help.

Students from The Daily Illini will be on-site handing out thousands of copies of the Quad Day Edition to their peers. Copies are also distributed around campus and the community.
