Hey UIC!!

So I helped babysit my resident director’s pet dog named Lily while she was away at GLACUHO (Great Lakes Association of College University Housing Officers). GLACUHO is a conference where our UIC campus housing officers can attend to programs to gain and share ideas traveling through their residence halls here on campus.

Babysitting Lily! =)
