“I joined The Ampersand during my first year at UIC and could not have anticipated the impact it would have on me; this club has not only enhanced my writing style, but it’s also taught me the reward of venturing outside of your comfort zone. Writing for this publication has taken me to exciting places, and I’ve met very memorable people along the way. I’m looking forward to another year of adventures and exploring fun events around the Honors College!”

“I chose to become involved with The Ampersand shortly after one of our editors interviewed me for an article. Throughout my involvement, I have enjoyed the chance to write about a range of topics, from social justice to interview-based profiles. Writing for the Ampersand has provided me with the opportunity to improve on my writing skills and to learn how to write using different styles.”
