Major: Chemistry
Future Plans: Earn a master’s degree

Matthew Lapsley is president of the Chemistry Club, an organic chemistry tutor with The Learning Hub and a volunteer chemistry tutor. He also plays on the University of Illinois Springfield men's tennis team. “I chose UIS for the opportunity to get a quality education while competing on the tennis court at a high level,” he said. When asked what he most likes about UIS, he said “the scientific community is small which has allowed me to form close relationships with both my peers and professors.” Following graduation from UIS, he plans to continue his education through the pursuit of a master's degree.

Leadership is lived at UIS. Every day.
