Andrew Koontz ‘18

Hometown: Belleville, IL
Major: Computer Science
Future Plans: Work with computers

As a student manager at Brookens Library, Andrew Koontz makes sure that patrons find the resources they need. He also trains new student workers and is responsible for special projects. Koontz has worked at the library for the past year and a half and worked his way up to the student manager position. It’s the first time he’s ever held a management position. After he graduates from UIS, Koontz plans to continue to work with computers and possibly become a software engineer. He chose UIS because of the right-sized supportive community. “UIS has many services and opportunities for students that really helps them feel welcomed into the school. I think this is a great school,” he said.

Leadership is lived at UIS. Every day.
