Karen Seegers ‘20
Hometown: Harvard, IL
Future Plans: Become a Nurse
Karen Seegers grew up in a small town and knew she wanted to attend a university where her professors would know her name. She’s glad she chose the nursing program at the University of Illinois Springfield. Seegers enjoys helping people and wants to work as an emergency flight nurse and eventually become a nurse practitioner. At UIS, Seegers is also part of the Leadership for Life living-learning community. It is a service and leadership program for first year students located in Lincoln Residence Hall. In October 2016, Seegers and a group of 25 other students traveled to Baton Rouge, Louisiana to help flood victims clean up their homes.
Leadership is lived at UIS. Every day.
