||R. Seth Crompton, President
From the President...
Thank you for visiting our site and we look forward to meeting you at one of our events. The St. Louis
Metropolitan area is home to a large number of alumni and of course, within a relatively short travel
distance to the University, making our area a very integral market for the University. The University of
Illinois is a world class institution, and it is incumbent upon all of us, the alumni, to act as ambassadors in
order to enhance its growth and success.
We hope that you will not only join the club, but actively participate in the various activities and
opportunities we have to offer. The club is only as good as its membership, which means that for it to
stay active and vibrant, we need not only your participation, but also your ideas and experiences. The
club offers various events catered to all of its members and their family and friends, including sporting
events, family events, speakers, community activities, and networking happy hours, just to name a few.
Please take advantage of the opportunity to meet other alumni and catch up with old friends, as well as
to network and learn together. As always, your suggestions for future events and activities are always
appreciated and you will of course be given the opportunity to take the lead on an event you suggest
should you desire to do so.
You can sign up for the club email on the website and please check back frequently for updates. We
and comments are important to us.
We look forward to seeing you.
R. Seth Crompton
