CHAMPAIGN-URBANA -- The University of Illinois rededicated the campus' beloved alma mater statue in a ceremony held this morning.

Here's a little did you know--next week marks the statue's 85th anniversary. The alma mater was created and dedicated in 1929.

The statue recently underwent a complete restoration to return the statue to it's original splendor, and it was back in Urbana in April.
