Megan Price ’21 wants to practice primary care in a rural community, something she’s on her way to accomplishing as a student in the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Rockford Rural Medical Education Program.
“I chose IC because of the environment that I experienced when I first visited campus. Everyone was really friendly and made me feel comfortable. It didn't seem like I was going somewhere new, but rather it felt like I had already been there before.”
Before commencement marked the formal end of her undergraduate career, Alexa Jardenil ’20 was already working in a lab as a molecular biologist, something she credits to the Illinois College biology department.
