“I give to Illinois College because I believe in it - in the personalized educational experiences and the exceptional higher education that students receive. The faculty and facilities being built and maintained at Illinois College put the institution in a position where our continued support could spurn even greater achievements for our local and distant communities in the immediate future.
As an engineering consultant, the ability to effectively communicate technical problems and solutions to people outside the engineering profession is very important to my success. Illinois College's focus on communication within the classroom, along with my involvement in Sigma Pi, have given me communication experiences beyond those of an average young engineer and helped me succeed in this unique and rewarding branch of engineering.”
Doug and his wife, Tiffany Torbeck ’04, were married on April 4, 2009, and were thrilled to have many of their Illinois College friends at their sides. They both feel that Illinois College has blessed them with many lifelong relationships, the best of which being their marriage.
