About Me

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!

Best,
Jessica
