Many thanks. Very moving.


Illinois, and I think the Midwest in general, is rather known for having towns and cities named after other, more well-known places. Cases in point: Cairo, IL (pronounced KAY-roh); Peru, IL; Versailles, OH (pronounced ver-SALES). It is true pilgrimages and nostalgia are not all that we are about; just as the history Shimerians study in the classroom enables us to understand the 'why' of the present (and envision the future from there), Shimer's (oft-mythologized) past is an excellent springboard into what the college is and can be.
