Transcript: Ana Laura (4th yr., Pol. Sci & History)
The University is really close to my family and that's one of the reasons why I came to the University -- it's very close. It was only an hour commute from my home. And also the cost of the University is actually a lot lower then other universities in the city.
And it's also great academics compared to other universities also in the country.
[Question: Your Experience?]
It's been a great experience. As a transfer, it was difficult when you don't know anyone. You kind of just have to get involved and start meeting people. But once I got involved with organizations and started meeting people, it's great.
[Question: Groups to Join?]
At first I joined religious organizations, then I joined a sorority and just the government -- the student government, I joined that. I met a lot of people from the city. I didn't know anyone before coming to UIC. I met a lot of people from classes and things like that.
[Question: Favorite Classes?]
Most of my favorite classes: I took Greek and I learned a lot about the Greek culture and the Greek language -- and also Political Science classes -- it is my major and I enjoy it a lot.
[Question: Words of Advice?]
Once you come to UIC, just meet people and go out there. It's a commuter school so you just have to get involved and be outgoing. There's someone for you here; so you'll meet a lot of people. You'll have fun.
