My academic experience at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has been amazing. Before college, I was already an avid bookworm and academic, but I've truly been able to thrive at UIUC. All of my professors that I've had so far have been amazing. They bring so much passion to class and truly care about us succeeding and understanding the material. They are experts in their subjects, but they are always open to hearing our ideas and opinions, and enjoy discussing with us. I've also been able to have eye-opening discussions with my peers, and have been able to learn about people and their experiences from all over the country - and even some from other parts of the world! I've had a wide array of opportunities to get involved at my school. I'm a breaking news editor for the college paper, I worked with a peer of mine to write grant applications for a non profit, and I helped edit pieces for a student literary journal. I've loved my freshman year and I cannot wait to see what I can accomplish within the next three years. Choosing to go to UIUC has been one of the best decision I've ever made.

I was a little wary about attending such a large school, out of fear that I would have nowhere to fit in. That is not the case at University of Illinois. There are so many opportunities to find your niche! With an abundance of clubs, activities, and sports, there is always something to do and someone to meet! The classes are very well taught in my experience, with many options for improvement. There are help centers and libraries that make studying easy! (which is something I never thought I would say). I know I haven't been here long, but I already know I wouldn't want it any other way.

The varsity sports at UIUC are nothing to brag about...but the fan section definitely is! Every Saturday it feels like the entire school is there in the student section cheering on our mediocre football team. It's the same way for basketball, volleyball, and most other sports. And, if you are interested in playing a sport or trying out something you've never done before, there is most likely a club team for it!
