Kristin's quick take.
Give a tip to incoming freshmen
Ask for help early, because there are plenty of people willing to help, and it only gets more difficult to catch up later if you fall behind.
3 words that describe UIC students
Diverse, innovative, and professional.
My top reason for choosing UIC was the wide range of majors available. You can study just about anything.
This is me. Uniquely UIC.
What are some of your hobbies and interests?
I practice Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu as a hobby. I have competed in many tournaments in Chicago and Los Angeles.
What inspired you to pursue your degree or select your major?
I wanted to be in a career that is very malleable and intellectually challenging. I currently work in aviation but did not want to work at the airport my whole life. The legal profession will allow me to further advance my career in aviation.
What's your favorite place on campus?
The meditation and serenity rooms in Student Center East. These are my favorite spots because being at a university can be stressful at times, and they provide a quiet and relaxing space to get away.
You make us uniquely UIC.
Everyone has a story that makes them a unique part of UIC.
