Ben Paoletti says he chose the University of Illinois Springfield because of its affordability, location in the state capital and its commitment to civic engagement. He is a member and resident assistant for the Leadership for Life Service Program, a student project coordinator for the UIS Volunteer & Civic Engagement Center, vice president of the Alternative Spring Break student organization and is a former undergraduate senator on the Student Government Association. In March, Paoletti traveled to Houston, Texas with a group of 21 UIS students as part of Alternative Spring Break to clean up Hurricane Harvey damage.
