Light it up
UIC alumnus Rick Schmidt (’91 Engineering) lights the torch at the men’s basketball game Saturday during the Lighting of the Flame ceremony. “Ceremonies such as the Torch Bearer are important traditions for students and alumni that bind us as members of the university community,” Schmidt said. “I’m proud to be a UIC graduate.”
UIC student Taylor Casino, who graduates in May from the College of Business Administration, will be the Torch Bearer Feb. 19. Dentistry alumna Arlene Engert lights the Flame Feb. 21.
