Alison McCrady works on campus as a resident assistant for UIS Residence Life and is a welcome team leader for the Christian Student Fellowship. She is also a member of the Capital Scholars Honors Program. “I chose UIS because of the size of campus, and because I can form closer relationships with my professors,” she said. “I like that I am able to get to know other students in my classes because of the small class sizes.” Following graduation from UIS, she plans to attend graduate school and earn a master’s degree in social work.

Leadership is lived at UIS. Every day.
