GALLERY: Rainy Days at UIUC

By Jack Coombs

 

Fall is upon us at the University of Illinois, and with it comes those cold, wet, rainy days. Make sure you always have an umbrella in an exterior pocket of your backpack, and break out those old high school sweatshirts that fit you comfortably. Before you head back outside into the cold, enjoy a few pictures of our campus on a rainy day.

This is a direct result of looking at your phone while walking. Be careful of those puddles!

No, Alma Mater is not crying. She is a strong, independent statue that doesn’t need an umbrella.

Although the days of shorts and swimsuits are gone, fall brings out exciting new opportunities to have fun, especially on this campus. Happy November, Illinois!
