Media Advisory — State Farm Donation

Representatives of State Farm® will be at Southern Illinois University Carbondale on Tuesday, April 15, to present a substantial gift from State Farm Companies Foundation to enhance technology programs at the University. A brief ceremonial check presentation is set for 2:30 p.m. in Conference Room 222 at the College of Applied Sciences and Arts, located at 1365 Douglas Drive, across the street diagonally from the SIU Arena.

Reporters, photographers and camera crews are welcome to cover the event. When entering the building through the doors marked "Heartland Dental Clinic," proceed through the clinic waiting room to the hallway and turn right toward the elevator at the far end of the hall. When exiting the elevator on the second floor, Room 222 will be at the opposite end of the hallway.

After the presentation, those in attendance may tour a nearby lab in Room 205 to see SIUC students utilizing some of the newly acquired technology equipment.
