A graduate of Seneca Township High School, Kevin came to Illinois Wesleyan after growing up in Kinsman, IL. He chose IWU because of the small population; it resembled his high school and hometown because they were small as well. There is also an opportunity to succeed in many organizations on our campus, and to be involved in more than one. He felt like he was at home when he came here because the administration, faculty, and staff all are so friendly, and want all students to be part of the IWU family. Kevin is a Summer Intern for Orientation Services and Fraternity and Sorority Life. He is also involved with the Sigma Pi fraternity, Tributaries, Ambassadors Club, and the Illinois State 4-H Officer Team.
His free time is limited, but when he does have some free minutes or a hour, he likes to go on walks or runs. He enjoys writing poetry and reading books. He is also a television junkie, and can be found watching movies. Kevin believes time with others is better than time spent alone. He remembers enjoying the Real World 101 presentation during his own orientation, and also enjoyed becoming super close with the members of his orientation group. They were the first IWU friends he had, and every time they hang out, a memory is brought up!
Kevin's advice for new students:
Be open to trying new things, and accept new ideas and concepts. I came in very one minded and didn't like to try new things, and I used excuses. 4 years here go fast, so live them to the fullest. Also learning to say no would have been highly helpful for me.
