Saluki Athletics has a week full of activities planned for the community!

Lia Mira started out with an April Fool’s bit aimed at our beloved Salukis.  SIU is definitely NOT changing the mascot.  She then invited SIU AD, Jerry Kill, to come in announce the exciting events for Southern Illnois Appreciation Week!   They want to share a big “Thank You” to Saluki Fans in Southern Illinois this week!  Meet & Greets, Bags Tournament, Tailgating and lots more!  See all the details here:
