  • Welcoming 2012 the Illini Way

    It's 2012 and all I can say is Happy New Years! I hope everyone spent the much deserved break filling their hearts and stomachs with the love from friends and family's hometown cooked food. As did I back in the land that I love the most, Houston, Texas (sorry Illinois). I can’t believe 2012 is already here! I can't lie that I expected flying cars and hover boards by now but it is incredible how time flies. It definitely doesn’t feel like I’ve been at U of I for one and a half years already. It feels just like yesterday when I was just a freshman walking through the halls of the College of Business wondering where the heck the Deloitte Auditorium was. It already feels like this year is going to be a lot of hard working lunches and long nights from studying and getting involved more around campus, but with a new year comes new courses that I would like to share with you.

    As far as my schedule goes, this is where I will be spending most of my day doing besides writing blogs for you guys.

    • “BADM 320: Principles of Marketing” 
    • “ECON 203: Economic Statistics” 
    • "ACCY 201: Intro to Accounting" 
    • “PORT 400: Intermediate Portuguese” 
    • “MATH 234: Business Calculus”

    So a new semester, new courses and a new year I’m excited and already looking forward to 2012 with its new challenges, ups, downs, and memories that are waiting around the corner! There will be many challenges, as there always are, but I know deep inside my heart that the U of I family will and is always up to those challenges. Can I get an I-L-L!!!
