In the College of Applied Health Sciences, we are thrilled and honored when you use those things to engage with the college today.

Over the years, it has become clear that students value input and guidance from someone who works in their desired field and has been where they are today. We love it when our alumni return to campus to share their industry expertise, provide career guidance, mentor students, or partner with our faculty in research.

This can be something as simple as wearing your Illini Orange and Blue on Friday‚Äôs or encouraging someone you know to consider an AHS graduate or undergraduate program. Evangelists honestly share about their experience while here at Illinois and the lasting impact it has had on their life.
