Illini scholarship count as of April 23, 2021

A lot has happened this offseason for the Illinois basketball program as far as additions and departures are concerned.

Some of the best players to come through Illinois have left the program. Ayo Dosunmu and, likely, Kofi Cockburn will be missed dearly. It will be hard to ever find a one-two punch like those two ever again.

Howard Students Protest Cut of Classics Department, Hub for Black Scholarship

As an alumna of Howard University, Anika Prather remembers feeling that the classics were everywhere during her years as a student. No matter your major or field of study, she recalled, it was practically a given that classics would be woven into your educational experience.

“My brother was a pre-med student — we both went to Howard — and I remember sitting there seeing him read all types of classics, like we all had to, classics or some work of the canon, but then you’re reading it from a Black perspective,” Dr. Prather said. “It’s really incredible.”

At Howard, the
