I am so excited to be blogging for Admissions at the University of Illinois, and to say I “bleed orange and blue” is an understatement. My name is Hannah, and I am a recent graduate of Illinois. I am thrilled to be working on campus to help prospective students find their home at Illinois like I did.
As a Pathway student, I understand the challenges of adapting to life at both a community college as well as a 4-year institution. Whatever you're interested in knowing, please don’t hesitate to reach out! I understand there are many, many questions associated with both of those transitions, and I’m happy to help you through that process.
I grew up just 30 minutes north of Champaign-Urbana and am confident in telling you that whatever you're wondering about—campus-specific or related to our amazing community—I’ll be able to help you out. From the fantastic new restaurants that are popping up each year (one of my favorite parts) to the seemingly endless things you can do, I have plenty of recommendations!
On this blog, you’ll be able to find lots of helpful information written by both counselors and current students related to commonly asked questions about Illinois and the admissions process. But don’t stop here! Whether it’s virtually, on campus, or near your hometown at a college fair, I’m here to answer your questions, and I hope to meet you all soon!
