Favorite Illini Moment: My first Illini football game. We lost, but the experience itself: seeing the thousands of students, spending time with friends, cheering, and being part of the overall event was such a fun experience.

Favorite Illini Moment: My first quad day was definitely my favorite moment. After signing up for at least 20 RSO's and groups, I felt like an Illini for the first time.

Favorite Illini Moment: Move in week! Everyone is back on campus with new stories to tell each other. Ready to start a new school year. It is always amazing to see all my friends come back have our first reunion the weekend before classes start.

Favorite Illini Moment: Getting the opportunity to Study Abroad in Cape Town, South Africa, I would say is my favorite Illini moment. I learned so much in so little time and the experience re-shaped my understanding and importance of being globally aware. I feel that I am much more engaged as a student and willing to try new things!
