An Ilini love story, sticky-floored bar edition:

“One of the most special places for me is Kam’s,” says Jamila Reeves (’05), managing director of Teach for America. “Yes — the smelly, infamous campus bar. 

“I met my now-husband there when he bought me $1 beer, and it’s been true love ever since. We now reside in New York City, but we love telling the story of how and where we met. 

“Who could’ve guessed that I would find love at Kam’s, of all places.”
