SIU Student Center



It’s a 150th birthday bash and you’re invited. Southern Illinois University Carbondale was founded in 1869 and on March 6, the third annual Day of Giving, a yearlong celebration will begin.

The Student Center will be hosting a party on the first floor. There will be birthday cookies, a disc jockey, balloon animals, a fun photo booth and a big screen television so participants can watch the tally grow for the 24-hour online fundraising Day of Giving campaign.

In addition, there will be some special activities and giveaways, including a commemorative gift, just for SIU students.
