College Tour

Two AHS students featured in The College Tour

Eleven students from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign will be featured in an edition of “The College Tour,” a television series that gives admitted and prospective students the opportunity to tour campuses virtually and learn about academic and extracurricular experiences available to undergraduates.

“As a first-generation student, it was really important to me to show that people like myself can reach higher education,” said Kennedy Campbell, a rising junior from Chicago who appears in the episode. “I wanted to share my story to inspire the next generation of students.”

A virtual watch party for the episode’s premier is scheduled for Sunday, May 23, at 7 p.m. CDT. The episode will be available beginning at that time on YouTube at, along with additional interviews with the featured students, host Alex Boylan and executive producer Lisa Hennessy, an Illinois alumna in speech communication.
