Memories of SSU/UIS
“My favorite memories at UIS were making life-long friends whom I cherish, and opening myself up to see things through a smaller town perspective vs. growing up right outside of Chicago. And of course, my studies, the close-knit environment, and job successes I experienced at UIS as well.”
How did UIS change or prepare you?
“Going to school in the Illinois State Capital offered a number of opportunities to work for State Departments. I was so lucky to receive the kind of internships I had because of our school’s location & network with governmental parties. In addition, the smaller atmosphere of UIS really allowed me to easily meet professionals around the area & have a closer relationship with my professors & peers. The Business Administration & Management Departments at UIS were truly amazing.”
“I love traveling. My mother took my sister and I to Europe on several occasions growing up & my father is from the Middle East.”
