Angela graduated from Glenbrook South High School in Glenview before choosing Illinois Wesleyan. She really liked the small class sizes and how she would be able to get more individual attention from the professors. She also loved the library because she considers herself a huge nerd and knew she would be spending a lot of time there!
Angela is a member of the Sigma Kappa sorority, where she has held positions as the national magazine correspondent and recording secretary. She was vice president of Circle K this past year and has been involved in Amnesty International, the waterpolo intramural club, and has written for The Argus. She likes to hang out with her friends and family, go shopping, eat sour gummy worms, travel, study for the GRE (not really), watch bad television, and lay outside and attempt to not be so pale.
During her own Turning Titan Orientation, Angela enjoyed all the time she spent with her TOL group. Many of the friendships she made that week have continued to this day and she felt much more comfortable starting college when she was able to recognize other people around campus. She also liked the book discussion because she thought it was a good introduction to the discussion-based classes here at Wesleyan.
Angela's advice for new students:
I wish someone had told me to be more careful about budgeting my time. Since you're not in class all day like in high school, there's a lot more free time and you might figure you always have time to do work later. Try not to get too much into the habit of procrastinating because eventually the work starts to catch up with you and all-nighters are NEVER fun. I had to learn the hard way! More importantly, don't be too nervous about starting college--yes, it's a big change, but just relax and try to enjoy it!
