I'm thrilled to be blogging my first post on the College of Business blog! My name is Billy Tabrizi, and I am a sophomore in the College of Business majoring in Accountancy. If I have one thing to tell everyone reading this, it's that I love U of I and the College of Business! And, if I have introductory advice to give before we get into all the nitty gritty awesome details throughout the year, it is to GET INVOVLED! There is so so much to do on campus and so many great opportunities to meet fantastic people whom you'll know for the rest of your life!
But, we'll start out with some background information. I am from Vernon Hills, IL, and I went to the very creatively named Vernon Hills High School! Choosing a college was a really tough decision. I got into Notre Dame, Northwestern, Loyola, WashU, and Marquette. Ultimately, I wanted to have the best of big schools and small schools. The College of Business really has this "small school" feel within an amazing Big Ten university. I'm sure I'll have lots to say on this throughout the year, so there is just a sampling!
Please feel free to email me questions and I'll reply to you AND post online if you'd like! Can't wait to hear from you! Good luck!
