Hello Everyone! My name is Abhinav Brahmamdam and I am a sophomore majoring in Finance and Accountancy. I’m excited to be blogging my first post on the College of Business Website! Before we delve into any more details, I just want to say how happy I am to be studying here at the University of Illinois and specifically the College of Business. Selecting a college was one of the toughest decisions on my life and the College of Business has truly become my home! The College of Business really has the small school environment that fits in so well with the atmosphere of a large, Big Ten school that U of I is. There are so many opportunities to fulfill your dreams here on this campus and it will truly be four years that you will remember for the rest of your life!
Going back a bit, I am from Springfield, IL and went to Springfield High School (I know, such an original name). Other than having the great pleasure of blogging for the College of Business, I am involved in a few other organizations on campus. I am currently the Alumni Relations Chair in Phi Gamma Nu Professional Business Fraternity and am a First-Year Consultant in Students Consulting for Non-Profit Organizations. There are so many way to make an impact on this campus and if I could leave you with one key takeaway it would be to Get Involved! Trust me, the more involved you are, the greater your college experience will be.
