As the cool autumn weather moved into Illinois, the Department of Geology returned to its “Flannel Friday” tradition:  Many students, faculty, and staff wear their flannel shirts each Friday.  Here, a flannel-wearing group gathered on the North steps on a crisp Friday afternoon as the trees were just beginning to turn colors.

Alumni, send us your Flannel Friday photos at with your name and year and we'll post them on the department Facebook page!
