Interview with Danny Lee, Economics major, Class of 2017 Fall
Have you lived or studied abroad? If so, what was your most memorable experience there?
I was born in Chile in South America, and I studied there my whole life. I have a lot of good memories from Chile. I went backpacking to Patagonia for a week, and it was amazing. I love nature, and I’ve always been into camping, so doing something like that was really fun. You don’t have to think about anything, you just climb.
What do you like best about UIC? Do you have favorite subjects so far that you would recommend to underclassmen?
When I think about UIC, I don’t think about classes. I think about the campus, the setting. I like the campus because it’s big and spacious. There is a lot of nature and people. That’s why I didn’t like Songdo that much, it’s so empty and industrial-looking.”
You should take Daryl Bockett’s class. He is the best professor at UIC. He is an International Studies professor. He taught me World History when I was a freshman. He is just a cool guy with a unique sense of humor—it’s funny if you get it.
If you won the lottery, how would you use it?
I would invest in companies, and I would use it to do something nice for my parents.
If your house was on fire and you could take three things what would they be?
My laptop, my camera, and my nintendo switch. If I had a dog, I would take my dog.
