  • Where can a senior design project lead if you're a student in the Western Illinois University-Quad Cities School of Engineering?

    For two 2017 grads, the answer is: getting hired as design engineers before even graduating, and then receiving FAA certification for a project they've built from scratch.

    Congrats, Michael Berggren and Jonathan Wenthold, on your high-flying achievement!

  • "As I reflect on Veterans Day, I want to tell people that just because you have anxiety, depression, or you feel like an outcast, doesn't mean that there is no one there for you," says Abigail Stevenson, Veterans Resource Center representative. "I want people to know that they are loved and cared about."
