SALUKI SPIRIT INITIATIVE 2016-17
The Carbondale Chamber and the SIU Campus Community invite you to join us in celebrating our Saluki Spirit. Throughout the 2016-2017 academic year several programs will be presented to encourage Carbondale businesses, organizations and residents to SHOW OUR SCHOOL SPIRIT. Each year, thousands of new students and visiting families arrive in Carbondale for various campus and community related events. We want to show them how proud we are of our Salukis and our town. Whether you realize it or not, these are one in the same. Already you see the Saluki Paw Prints decorating our roads and businesses around Saluki Country and many local business already decorate their buildings and their staff with Maroon and White.
We would like to encourage you to have your employees or group members wear maroon on any day before SIU games throughout this year’s Saluki athletic and academic season. Let’s all band together and show visiting people what a town united and painted in maroon looks like.
