What is your favorite thing about being a student at UIS? My favorite thing about UIS is the small campus size and the people that go to UIS. When compared to bigger schools, classes at UIS are much smaller and gives us the opportunity to interact with both students and professors more openly. My favorite place at UIS is the TRAC/Gym because I love playing basketball and working out when I’ve got some free time.
What are your goals for the semester? My goals for this semester are just the same as every other student and that is to get good grades and be more involved during lectures in class. Apart from academics, I want to ensure that I push myself to go to the gym and also win this year’s Springfest!
If there were a reality TV show of your life, what would it be called? Why? If there were to be a reality TV show of my life it would be called “Life’s all about sports” because I’ve played many sports in my life and whenever I’ve been nervous or faced a difficult situation I put myself in a game like situation and adapt based on it.
Are you involved in any clubs/activities/sports on campus? Or what are your hobbies? Due to my hectic schedule on campus, I try my best to be involved in a few activities. I’m part of United Bible Fellowship where I try my best to attend bible study every Wednesday and Worship on Sunday. Also, I participate in most of the intramural sports when the opportunity arises. Other than that, I enjoy playing FIFA and 2K on my PS4 with friends!
What have you learned since working at the library? The main thing I’ve learned is managing my time more efficiently since I’ve started working here. Working in such a diverse environment has helped me communicate more methodically as well as coordinate better with my co-workers in completing tasks adequately.
What are your post-graduation plans? After I graduate, my goal is to get a job in a big city! Preferably Atlanta, Austin TX, or a state that’s much warmer than Illinois. I plan to move to the city because I prefer living in a more fast-paced surrounding and enjoy the lifestyle that a big city has to offer.
What is your favorite item from the library collection? My favorite thing from the library of things are the board games and the technology supplies they provide. There have been times where I forget my headphones or charger while I study at the library but thankfully the library of things always comes in clutch in providing such amenities.
