“UIC has been a wonderful learning experience, and I can earnestly say that one could seek to gain as much academic knowledge as well as interpersonal skills as a student here. The global atmosphere is beneficial to personal growth and allows the journey to be more exciting as you meet peers as well as faculty from all over the world. The possibilities are endless, that is if you are willing to open yourself up to them.”

“UIC allows you to utilize all kinds of resources to study any subject that you want to learn. Additionally, the excellent mentors I met at UIC make me who I am today. If I could go back in time, I would advise myself to focus on three essential things — expand your network, study everything, and have more fun. Don’t take things for granted. Studying in college is literally one of the best things in your life. Enjoy it while you can.”
