Students are preparing to celebrate a special Homecoming this year with festivities commemorating the 100-year anniversary of the institution’s move from Mendota to Aurora and activities centered around the theme “Back to the Future.”
The Spartans began an exciting athletic season with wins in tennis, soccer and volleyball, and impressive showings in cross country and golf.
Aurora University has announced that Mark Walsh will step down from the role of Athletic Director this September to focus his time on serving as Head Football Coach. An alumnus of the university, Walsh has worked in a number of AU coaching and administrative roles since 1986, and as Athletic Director since 1998.
It’s been a pretty amazing spring for the Spartans. Over the past few weeks, Aurora University athletic teams have put together quite the list of accomplishments in every spring sport.
It would make sense to start a story about Tim Mackey on the baseball field. After all, he’s a senior third baseman who bats second for an Aurora University team that is expected to compete at the national level this year. But that might make it appear as though Mackey is defined by the game he has played and loved since he was a child. And Mackey is anything but a one-dimensional jock.
