Student Spotlight: Madalyn M. Barnes, Child and Family Studies Student

Madalyn Barnes is a Department of Human Services student in the Child and Family Studies concentration.  She is a Service Coordinator for Early Intervention. Early Intervention is voluntary program for children birth to three with special needs. I enjoy the helping field, it’s a way of life for me. I received my undergraduate degree from UIS in just three years. I also played on the UIS volleyball team, was a resident assistant, worked part time at the UIS Cox Children’s Center, and participated in Resident Housing

“I would advise future students to fully immerse themselves in the UIS experience. Take part in GSPI, volunteer, and many more opportunities help shape your life and career vision. UIS has given me all of these opportunities and many more life lessons that are priceless. I am so thankful for the experience!”
