Jess's Bio

Hi Everyone!

My name is Jess Strong and I recently joined the team here in the office of undergraduate admissions. I am not new to admissions, this is my 5th year in the profession and I absolutely love it. I will be working with students throughout the admissions process, specifically international students. I am happy to help however I can throughout your college search.

I grew up in the Peoria, Illinois area and have been a lifelong University of Illinois fan. I am excited to finally be officially a part of the Illini Family! I look forward to working with you all throughout this process.

My biggest piece of advice for anyone going through the college search process would be to ask questions. There are no questions too small, that’s why we are here!
