Description

Given on September 7, 1968 at Allerton Park, two days before the incident at the Union, this speech discussed what role Illini Guides played in welcoming the new students. The speech explained that Project 500 students came from backgrounds that may be very different than what other University of Illinois students came from. The outline encouraged guides to be as helpful as they could to Project 500 students in order to make them feel welcome in their dorms. The conditions in their dorms were directly related to the incident at the Union.
