As a transfer student, Cambry Bennett says she had a smooth transition to the University of Illinois Springfield. Now she’s helping prospective students learn about UIS as a Student Ambassador. As a Student Ambassador, Bennett gives campus tours to high school students and their parents who are interested in attending UIS. On campus, Bennett is a member of the Commuter Student Association and sings in the UIS Music Choir Ensemble. She’s also a member of International Student Fellowship, a group which aims to help international students feel welcome in Springfield. This past summer, Bennett traveled to seven foreign countries as part of an educational Christian mission trip. Following graduation from UIS, Bennett would like to continue to travel world-wide and teach English through mission work.

Leadership is lived at UIS. Every day.
