Meet Champaign Centennial grad Aaron Von Qualen, 24, the Illinois State University student trustee.
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.
