Richmond Family Welcome Gallery
The Richmond Family Welcome Gallery at Alice Campbell Alumni Center is a showcase for the heritage and global impact of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, made possible through the generosity of the late Jack and Marjorie Richmond.
Featuring interactive exhibits about the past, present, and future of the University, the Welcome Gallery opened during Illinois’ Homecoming Week in October 2018. The gallery serves as a destination for returning alumni and other campus visitors and a gateway through which prospective students and their families can learn about and explore the University. We hope you will visit us during your next trip to campus!
