Bio: My name is Garrett Brown and I'm a 3L at the Moscow campus. I graduated from the University of Washington in 2013 with a degree in Political Science. I spent the next few years working in the Seattle office of a national law firm and volunteering with the Peace Corps in Gansu Province, China. I chose the U of I because of the school's commitment to public service and its welcoming environment. I've really enjoyed my time here in Moscow meeting new people and participating in clubs. I’m excited to graduate and apply what I've learned in practice.
Words of Advice: Talk to your professors and the academic support staff if you need help. They're here to help you succeed. Also, make your health a priority. Use your U of I gym membership and remember to eat some vegetables. You'll feel a lot better.
