Alicia Jacobsen

Position title: ILS Student Ambassador


Hi I’m Alicia Jacoben!  I am currently a junior studying political science and taking the integrated liberal studies certificate.

Originally a student at the University of Wisconsin – Whitewater, I transfered to UW Madison with the hope of pursuing a more classically liberal education. That pursuit led me to ILS. Coming from a smaller university setti ng, ILS not only provides an engaging learning environment, but also a sense of community on a large city campus. The professors, TAs, and other ILS students all share the common goal of pursuing knowledge through niche areas of interest and taking the liberal quest for knowledge seriously. I could not have found a better home away from home than the Meiklejohn House filled with good hearted ILSers.
