Centennial grad is student trustee at ISU

Meet Centennial grad Aaron Von Qualen, 24, who since 2012 has held the post of Illinois State University student trustee.

What I enjoy most: In this position, you really have an opportunity to represent students in many different ways, so I try to go to as many university events — different athletic, academic and student events or if there's a guest speaker on campus — as I can.

In my spare time, I like to ... work out and run.

Another unique college experience: Last summer, I did an internship in Lugano, Switzerland through Franklin College. I worked in the student life office for a month and a half. I also got to visit Italy, Denmark, England and France.

Most people don't know ... I have a big family. I'm one of seven children in a blended family.
