My name is Evan Lorenz and I am currently an Admissions Counselor at the University of Illinois. I graduated from the University of Illinois with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology with minors in both Communications and Business in 2017 and joined the Admissions team here at Illinois in May 2018. I’m planning to pursue a Master’s degree at Illinois sometime soon in the future, but am not one hundred percent sure what program I want to pursue at this point. One of the most important things about me though is that I love it here at Illinois as both an Alumnus and a staff member and would love to share everything I know and love about Illinois with you!
I come from Aurora, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago and one of the largest cities within the state. As an Illini through and through, I am extremely passionate about continually exploring the abundance of opportunities the university offers to students and staff and sharing this knowledge with friends and family. Outside work, I love listening to music, especially attending concerts such as the Foo Fighters at Wrigley Field in July, watching Illini athletics, and almost any piece of merchandise you can slap a Block I on.
I plan to use this blog as a source of information about Illinois and everything related to our admissions process, as well as other miscellaneous information related to Illinois. I am always open to questions, so feel free to send them my way!
