1977 was a good year
The year 1977 was a big one for aeronautics and aerospace—both real and fictional. The Concord made its first commercial flight, the NASA space shuttle had its first test flight, and the first Star Wars film opened in cinemas. In hindsight, it was also a year that a generous class of aerospace engineers graduated from the University of Illinois.
Today, a little over 40 years later, the Class of ’77 is establishing a scholarship to be named, The Aerospace Engineering Class of ’77 Engineering Visionary Scholarship. The EVS scholarship drive is a $100 million College of Engineering initiative to help make attending college more affordable for future generations of students.
