In Maks’ words, “Going away to University of Illinois Springfield will definitely be a big change for me (and my family), but overall I’m looking forward to it! I will be majoring in Information Systems Security (cyber security), and will be in the school honors program. I intend to be very active on campus, participating in different clubs or intramural sports. I also plan on attending mass every week and a youth group on campus.”
