I am excited to announce my verbal commitment to swim and study at the University of Illinois at Chicago! The school and the city provide unlimited opportunities and the coaches and swimmers made me feel at home. Thank you to all my family, friends and coaches that helped me along the way. Go Flames!
My official visit was the first time in my entire life that I had been to Chicago, and it was pretty awesome. Everything felt like an upgrade compared to what I have now. I have visited so many colleges, called roughly four dozen college coaches, and responded to an in-numerous amount of emails from college coaches. I learned how each college is a little different, including how some colleges may or may not have: insomnia cookies, a 50 meter pool (with great air quality), incredible swim coaches, a Division 1 swim program, a fun team, a variety of different food places and majors, a convenient catholic church, comfortable dorms, a monumental city, and last but not least, snow. However, the University of Illinois at Chicago does!!! I would like to thank everyone and everything that helped me decide which college I could successfully fulfill the next four years of my life. Let’s go Flames!
