You’re probably reading this because you’re thinking about coming to the University of Illinois and while I can’t speak for everyone, I can definitely tell you that the past 3 years here have been the greatest years of my life.

“Illinois is the right choice for college because we offer numerous opportunities…” said every admissions talk ever. But what does that mean? 





Journey through college isn’t a straight read

Ethan"The College of Media's strong network and dedicated staff prepared me to tackle the job market immediately following graduation. My advisors encouraged me to expand my portfolio during school through a number of on-campus opportunities, and my first job with ESPN was obtained through a recommendation from a College of Media alumna. I wouldn't be where I am today without my 4 years in the college."

Scott“College is what you make of it and I believe I am its poster child. The University offers so much for everyone that it is impossible not to take advantage of it. I shot for the stars and interned as many places as I could over my four years and it led to two unbelievable summer internships at the United States Olympic Committee and CBS Sports. The College of Media helped me with the necessary skills and helped guide me through what are some of the most difficult times in a young professional's life. The College of Media is one of the major reasons that I was able to land a job at CBS Sports right after college.”
