What attendees had to say:

Anthony“Mediapalooza was all I needed to put Illinois over the top in terms of the school I wanted to attend. I was blown away by the resources and opportunities presented at Mediapalooza. I’ve known since I was little what I want to do when I grow up, and the University of Illinois College of Media has given me everything I needed to get there thus far. I wouldn’t have even known about it all if it weren’t for Mediapalooza. The best part of Mediapalooza was getting introduced to many students and professors who make the College of Media feel like family. I’m truly grateful I attended Mediapalooza and I recommend it for any student who wants to know more.”
—Anthony, sophomore in journalism

"I wish to thank you and the students, professors, department heads and dean who all gave up their Saturday in an effort to convey the uniqueness of your program to the prospective students, and especially my daughter Caroline. Caroline came to campus with a curiosity and left with a desire to attend U of I. While she has been accepted to other universities, none have made the effort to make a small-town girl from Coronado, CA, feel 'at home.' I've never seen a major university convey the special attention your department did for students."
—Dennis, parent, Coronado, CA

“I am very happy to say that Zack accepted his admission to the U of I last night. After meeting and speaking with everyone involved with the College of Media, my husband and I were confident that this program was the right choice for Zack. With much consideration, we all agreed this would be a wonderful program for him to grow, learn, and truly explore his field, and we expect him to take full advantage of this opportunity. He is soooo excited!!!!”
—Tani, parent, Weston, FL
