Major: Social Work
What is your favorite thing about being a student at UIS? My favorite thing about being a student at UIS is all of the opportunities I have on campus. There are so many different clubs and organizations to join, there truly is something for everyone! I also love the small campus size, so I can meet and interact with other students and staff often.
What are your goals for the semester?My goals for this semester are pretty simple. I really just want to be able to learn more about my major, as well as keep up my good grades.
If there were a reality TV show of your life, what would it be called? Why? If I were to have a reality show it would be called something like, “Keeping up with Teagan.” Although this is a basic answer, it would end up being very true. My days this semester are going to be really hectic and full of school, work, and activities. If I had a reality show, it would have to keep up with my busy schedule.
Are you involved in any clubs/activities/sports on campus? Or what are your hobbies? I am involved with a couple activities on campus. I am apart of the club volleyball team here, as well as being the secretary of my residence hall community council. Other than that, a lot of my time is spent at work or doing homework for my honors courses.
What have you learned since working at the library? I have definitely learned more time management skills. Not only when I’m working, but also outside of work due to the fact I always have to plan what I am doing before I actually do it to make sure I can achieve everything I want to achieve.
What are your post-graduation plans? I plan to become a probation officer after graduation. I am studying social work because the main thing I want to do in life is reach out and help people that are having a tough time. Being that this is my main goal, I decided to study social work rather than criminal justice, although my job is still within the criminal justice field. Thankfully, I can still pursue probation with the degree I want to receive.
What is your favorite thing from the library of things collection?: I love all of the board games we have available in our library of things! I have played board games constantly with my family since I could understand how to play, so seeing a collection here is like having a piece of home with me.
