Daniell Bennett

The University of Illinois Springfield was a top choice for Daniell Bennett. Between the location, small class sizes, and opportunities for involvement and networking, she says she knew it would provide everything necessary to prepare her for medical school. Chemistry plays a large role in her everyday life. She does research on water quality at the UIS Emiquon Research Station and in 2015 she travelled to New York with two professors to contribute to their research. The exhibit, titled “The Secret World Inside You,” was displayed at the American Museum of Natural History. Bennett has also held leadership positions in the Alternative Spring Break volunteer organization.

Leadership is lived at UIS. Every day.
