Students wishing to get a better idea of what the college life is like and start to get an idea of what they'd like to do in life can get the opportunity to do just that with the Illini Summer Academy. During the Academy, students will have the chance to live on the University of Illinois Campus and study one of the offered subjects in the program.
Alicia Gullidge, 4-H Youth and Program Coordinator with the Christian County Extension Office appeared on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show and discussed the program, saying it's a way to give youth a first hand look at the college life.
The event takes place in June, and the deadline to register is in May. The Academy gives students the opportunity to get a glimpse at a number of different career options.
