Friday morning, alumni and their families, along with Southern Illinois University Carbondale adminstration, staff, faculty, and students, gathered around Shryock Auditorium to celebrate the alumni Facebook group, "Carbondale in the 80's and 90's," for giving the most gifts for an non-academic unit and endowing two new scholarships.

A group of alumni at SIU-Carbondale has created a new scholarship.

The scholarship goes by the acronym, BEER, which stands for Balancing Education, Experience and Reality.
