An Illini love story, Ceramics Building edition ...

"From the classic architecture, to the various different types of brick used in its construction that you’ll see placards of when you walk the halls, the Ceramics Building means a lot to me both personally and professionally," says Brett Walker (Ph.D. '13), CEO of Austin, Texas-based Electroninks Incorporated.

"I spent many a week — and weekend — in the labs there during graduate school. I also met my wife there and even have a picture of the front of building in my house as a constant reminder. 

“It’s hard for me to think of my time at UIUC without thinking of the Ceramics Building.”
