Shaneela Aaron of Chicago admitted to the University of Illinois Springfield

Shaneela Aaron of Chicago, a senior at Roberto Clemente Community Academy, has been admitted to the University of Illinois Springfield for the fall 2018 term.

At Roberto Clemente, she is a cheerleader and a dancer. She plans to major in political science at UIS.

“I choose UIS because of the Illinois Innocence Project,” she said. “This is a unique and good hands-on program for pre-law students, such as myself.”

Following graduation from UIS, she plans to go to law school and study criminal law in order to become a lawyer.

The University of Illinois Springfield is proud to be one of three universities in the world-class University of Illinois System. Nearly 5,000 students enroll each year at UIS seeking a U of I degree in the friendly learning environment of a smaller university. Located in the state capital, UIS has a special mission in public affairs and has produced thousands of leaders in the public, private, and non-profit sectors.
