Over the four years spent at the University of Illinois, I was given the space and freedom to discover myself. I was allowed to succeed and to fail, all the same. The University of Illinois was everything I could have asked for and more when it came to laying my foundation and building towards the future.

UIC's applird psychology program was a surprising detailed and expansive program that got me feeling well prepared for my future job and well prepared for Grad school. They have some dedicated staff that are willing to go the extra mile to make sure you understand a concept. Their internship program in the senior year was also good practice and experience to make sure I feel more ready once I was put of school.
