It was my drive and will to succeed that pushed me to the top of my law school class. I knew that if I spent the time there learning the law, it would pay off during my legal career.

Agricultural and consumer economics alumna Alisha Biesinger long knew she wanted to be an attorney. After she concentrated her undergraduate studies on public policy and law, her natural instinct was to attend law school.

“It was my drive and will to succeed that pushed me to the top of my law school class. I knew that if I spent the time there learning the law, it would pay off during my legal career,” Alisha says. “I believe my drive to succeed, determination, and personal skills have allowed me to excel in my profession.”

These skills grew stronger during Alisha’s time spent at the University of Illinois. In her sophomore year, she began working for the College of ACES Alumni Association, which proved a great opportunity to build her network through her interactions with the college’s dean, faculty, staff, and students. Studying in Washington, DC and Guatemala provided her with unique learning perspectives.

“The extracurricular programs offer each student something different. Most importantly, the university strives to have the best and brightest students and academic faculty, which proves the great quality of education that the students receive,” Alisha says. “Overall, any student attending the University of Illinois will come away with meaningful experiences and a highly acclaimed education.”
