I understand your college search may look a little different at the moment, but I am here to help! As a previous transfer student from Lake Land College, I understand the importance of a smooth transition and I am committed to helping you every step of the way. Eastern Illinois University offers many opportunities for transfer students to gain hands-on experience both academically and recreationally, and is sized perfectly for your success! I look forward to welcoming you to the EIU family, future Panther!

About me:  I am a two-time EIU graduate (B.A. 2018 & M.S. 2020) and a third-generation EIU student. I love spending my free time with my husband and our three adorable dogs.

Advice for Students:  Get involved and explore your new community! The college experience doesn't start and end with your classes, there are so many ways to get involved on campus, and being an active participant in your campus community makes the world of a difference in your transition.

Favorite Place on Campus:  It's a tie between the Booth Library and the MLK Union Bridge Lounge! There are so many neat study spots in the library that helped me keep my focus during long study sessions and writing assignments. The Bridge Lounge has one of my favorite views of campus - I love watching the hustle & bustle of campus during the lunch hour there.
