The October student spotlight is Emma Shores, a junior public relations and political science major from Manteno. Shores is actively involved in University Program Board and served as the Social Media intern during Welcome Week this year.
Shores first heard of the Dean of Students Office after applying for a student worker position with Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution Services. From there, she found her niche in Student Activities and Involvement and continues to find other ways to further her involvement within the Dean of Students Office.
“To me, it’s important to be involved at Illinois State because these experiences and connections are the cherry on top of the excellent education I am also receiving,” she said. In addition, she emphasized the professional development skills she has acquired throughout her experience with Student Activities and Involvement and the Dean of Students Office.
For more information on how to get involved, contact the Dean of Students Office at (309) 438-2008.
