I Found My Niche at the University of Chicago

Student Name: Kyle

School: University of Chicago

Major: Classics

“What’s up, beautiful people! My name is Kyle and I am a freshman at the University of Chicago. I knew that when I finished my term of active duty service that I wanted to pursue higher education, but I never thought I could reach this high. I made a promise to my mom that I’d go to a great college one day and she wouldn’t have to pay a dime, and I kept it. I’m so excited to embark on this new chapter of my life and dive into the rich curriculum UChicago will offer.

I’m majoring in Classics for the fall. I chose UChicago because as a kid I grew up watching the Indiana Jones Trilogy and always remembered Indiana teaching at the University of Chicago and studying under Professor Ravenwood in the first movie ‘Raider of The Lost Ark.’ Indiana was my role model and I always told myself that I’d study at Chicago just like him one day. Still can’t believe I fulfilled younger me’s dream.”—@itstotallykylle
