My name is Evan Thompson and I'm a junior in the College of Business, double-majoring in General Management and Business Process Management (yes, they're different topics, I swear). I was asked to write this blog as a student at the College of Business. I guess you could say I'm just a normal student at the College. I just got involved at the end of last year in the Office of Admissions as a student worker to create videos and stuff. When I found out they were looking for students to blog about their experiences in the College, I jumped at the chance. I like being involved in as many aspects of the College as possible. First of all, it gives me a fuller experience at the College, and secondly, it's almost impossible to not be involved.
I'm off topic. Back to introductions.
I'm originally from Bettendorf, IA, a nice little city on the Mississippi River. My parents are both U of I alumni, undergraduate and law school, so thats what got me thinking about the U of I to begin with. I thought about UCLA, NYU, and Illinois. It was either Film Production at UCLA or Business at Illinois, and I decided that Film was pretty specific, but Business is ubiquitous (and I can do business in the film industry).
So that's who I am and why I'm here. If you have any questions from there, just shoot me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org). I look forward to sharing my experiences with you (and the whole Internet).
