Daria, Class of 2019: University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Champaign, IL

Daria has continued pursuing her interests in math and music at UIUC and credits Roycemore for uniquely preparing her for college, especially the opportunity to take classes at Northwestern during high school as part of our “Northwestern Option.” She is a member of a student club in the UIUC math department called AWM (Association of Women in Mathematics), and also conducts research in the Illinois Geometry Lab where she is participating in a project that focuses on creating exciting mathematics outreach materials for grades K-12. Daria continues to pursue her love of music in the UIUC chamber music program as a violinist in a string quartet. In addition to her academic pursuits, Daria helped create a UIUC chapter of Swipe out Hunger, attends events at the Hillel and Chabad Jewish Life Centers at UIUC, and helps plan RSJ (Russian Speaking Jews) activities. She hopes to rush an engineering sorority on campus this semester.
