Star of TV commercial reflects on four years at UIS
Four years ago, Taylor Moore of Springfield was featured in a television commercial for the University of Illinois Springfield. In the final scene, she was shown in a cap and gown. Now, in May, she’ll be graduating for real with a bachelor’s degree in chemistry.
“When I first came here I was unsure about where I wanted to go for school,” said Moore. “I started here because I had no idea what I wanted to do next, but after my freshmen year I really liked the teachers.”
As a UIS Chemistry major, Moore has been able to work one-on-one with faculty members and participate in their research efforts.
In October 2015, Moore plans to move to California and start Chiropractic School.
Reflecting on her four years at UIS, she says “It went by really fast.”
