Maggie's Bio

Hi! My name is Maggie!

I’m a senior in English and Economics with a minor in Informatics. As I write this, I’m having a hard time coming to grips with entering my last year of college. I’m from the relatively small town of Manhattan, Illinois, so living in Champaign-Urbana feels pretty urban and exciting compared to back home.

I started my time at Illinois undeclared in the Division of General Studies and really used my first year to explore every possible academic interest I had. I’m so glad I did. If you’re indecisive like me, fear not! You’ll figure things out!

Over the years, I’ve worked at The Daily Illini, mentored elementary-aged kids with the Illini Mentor Program, and helped edit one of the few undergraduate journals on campus, Re:Search. I also recently came back from studying abroad in England.

I hope my blogs are a helpful resource for you! Illinois is a great place to be.
