Jan 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. The university also imbues students with a good work ethic and gives them plenty of opportunities to help themselves grow, both personally and professionally. I’ve met students from some of the “brand name” schools and quite honestly, a number of them don’t have the dedication to work or the seriousness of purpose that’s needed to succeed in any field. Beyond the opportunities that SIU offered, I feel that it is a place where a student makes friends for life. That’s invaluable!”
