Hello and welcome to my site! My name is Jessica Ackley, and I describe myself as having an analytical mind, a creative soul, and a life somewhere in between. Hopefully, this site shows all of that.
A few things to know about me:
- I’m an (almost) graduate from Illinois State University, with a degree in Actuarial Science
- Since I will have an Actuarial Science degree, I’m hoping to find a job as an actuary or in data analytics
- I’m incredibly passionate about higher education and think it should be accessible to everyone
- Just like people are more than just a number, I believe universities are more than just a ranking
- Everyone shouldn’t have to live and learn, which is why I blog
A few things to know about College Candids:
- I started them to try and create a resource for people to learn about universities and majors. The people could be:
- Anyone interested in reading about other people’s college experiences
- High school students trying to decide on colleges or majors
- Current college students interested in transferring schools or switching majors
- I hope to (someday) collect Candids about every university and every major
- The opinions stated in the College Candids are those of the person featured in the Candid and may or may not be my own
- If you want to be featured in a College Candid, send me an email at JessicaAckley7@gmail.com!
You can read more about me by checking out my College Candid. If you want to chat, head over to the Contact tab. I’d love to hear from you!
