Nancy Cano chose the University of Illinois Springfield “for the small campus that would allow me to have more connections with the faculty and students,” she said. On campus, she is the marketing chair for the Baile Monarcas, a Latinx dance group. She is also a member of the Campus Child Advocates and the Art Club. Asked what she most likes about UIS, she said “besides the small community, I really like the koi fish pond.”

Leadership is lived at UIS. Every day.
