Biography: My name is Luke Emano and I am an Evans Scholar here at UIUC. I love meeting new people, trying new things, and I strive to be the best person I can be. I'm beyond excited to be a part of the iSchool here at Illinois and I'm so eager to discover what's to come in my academic career!
Why Information Sciences: I want to pursue a career in information technology because technology is the tool with the capacity to connect data, people, and the world together. We as human-beings give data meaning, and our ability to understand data is what matters in order for us to solve problems and fuel new ideas. The Information Sciences major at UIUC immediately attracts me because it provides the building blocks to develop the social, analytical, and technical skills needed to bring both people and data together. Emphasizing the human aspect of technology, this major is an opportunity for me to not only engage with people through technology but to be a connection that brings the world together.
Involvement & Experiences: BSIS Ambassador, Technology/Computer Chair for Illinois Evans Scholars Chapter, Founder of Illini Eskate, Scrimba Certification Web Development
