UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS -- There's a new guest taking up permanent residence on the UI campus. Abraham Lincoln can now be found on Lincoln Avenue. A life-sized statute sits in front of the Alice Campbell Alumni Center.

It shows the 16th president sitting on a bench holding notes from his second inaugural address. The statue was a gift from a UI alumni.
