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!
