Where compassion meets empathy. Where creativity meets tranquility. Where education meets mastery. Where advocacy meets hope. We present to you, One Story, a video series featuring some of our amazing graduate students. These stories demonstrate the compassion that joins us together and the core of the spirit that drives us, each one singularly compelling as it reveals the many dimensions of the Illinois experience. We are proud of each and everyone of our 20,000+ graduate students and look forward to sharing some of your stories.
