Chris Phan

“SIU School of Law gave me the professional education to become a Navy JAG officer. This amazing opportunity allowed me to successfully run for Garden Grove, Calif., city council and be an Orange County deputy district attorney.”

Jan Thomas Pasek

“I really grew up at SIU. The university, its faculty and fellow students gave me confidence about myself that I was lacking when I first entered the school.”

Paul W. Plotnick

“I received a great education at SIU. I particularly enjoyed Morris Library. When I did research for my thesis course, which was a requirement for my history major, all the resources I needed were in that library.”
