    Ana Cristina Rios Powell From Panama — Cinema and Television programme

    I am a degree-seeking student who will be majoring in Cinema and Television. Not too long ago, I was looking for a university to pursue my dream career while studying overseas and luckily for me, I found UIC. Since the very moment I reached out to them, I instantly realized they were the one. UIC staff has been nothing more than helpful and friendly professionals. I chose UIC not only because of their treatment but also for the amazing opportunities the university has to offer and its amazing campus. I cannot wait to experience life on campus very soon and meet everyone.
