Yuri's Bio

Hey! My name is Yuri, and I’m so pumped to be blogging for Admissions!

Choosing the right college or university is not an easy task and it should definitely be taken seriously. So I’m glad you’re taking advantage of this opportunity to hear what Illinos is all about from your peers.

The University of Illinois is one of the best public universities in the nation and my experience here has been exceptional. My two older sisters graduated from the University’s College of Business. They found the tools necessary for success at Illinois and beyond and I hoped the same formula would work for me. And thankfully, I made the right choice.

I have participated in many thought-provoking classes, learned from passionate professors, created great friendships, and taken major steps toward learning more about who I really am. Now studying News-Editorial Journalism, my U of I experience has been and continues to be completely my own.

I will be sharing my experiences and thoughts during my time abroad in Copenhagen through journal posts, videos, and photos. If you are interested in studying abroad or just want to keep up with my life, I hope to inform and entertain.

Feel free to comment and ask me questions about anything I post, whether it’s about studying abroad or life at Illinois!
