Araceli Ariza

Araceli Ariza chose the University of Illinois Springfield because it’s the perfect place for her to grow and learn. She now enjoys the small class sizes and the many opportunities available to her at UIS. She’s involved with the Organization of Latin America Students and a member of the UIS Greek Affairs Board. “UIS is preparing me to be independent and helping me grow as an individual and be successful in the career that I’m choosing to pursue,” she says. Following graduation, Araceli would like to work for a police department and give back to the community.

Leadership is lived at UIS. Every day.
