Krista Temple

Hey! I’m Krista Temple, a freshman majoring in Agricultural Communications. I grew up on a family farm near Fulton, IL. I was involved in 4-H for 10 years and many other extra curricular activities in high school. Coming to the University of Illinois and living at 4-H House were the dreams of my 4-year-old self coming true. I have eight relatives that have lived at the house and now it’s finally my turn!
I had a fantastic first semester at the University of Illinois and here at 4-H House! I had opportunities to research many topics that were interesting and relevant to me. One of these research projects was working with a professor on GMO news articles in Ghana, which was very interesting.
I also started a blog at kdtemple.wordpress.com, which has been a great experience!
I love living at 4-H House and the wonderful friends it has provided me with. Having upperclassman [ ]

Nicole Chance

Hello my name is Nicole Chance and I am a freshman majoring in agricultural communications at the University of Illinois. I grew up on a two-thousand acre grain farm and farrow-to-finish hog operation in Lebanon, Indiana. As an out of state student, coming to U of I was a completely different change. I knew absolutely no one coming here and for me it was an intimidating but exciting feeling. Living at 4-H house has given me a family that I never would have dreamed of. I am so proud to be apart of a sisterhood of girls that are always there for each other and support one another on a day-to-day basis.
Along with living in the house, I also had the opportunity to intern at the North American International Livestock Exposition (NAILE) held in Louisville, Kentucky, this past fall. I worked with a team of four girls and we wrote [ ]

Renee Tillman

My name is Renee Tillman and I am a freshman studying speech and hearing science. I grew up in Altamont, IL. Something unique about my 4-H House experience is that I have the pleasure of living in the house with my older sister, Rachel. But even more unique is the fact that I am not in the College of ACES, I am in AHS, or applied health sciences.
Last semester I had two classes with girls from the house who are also in the College of AHS. It was really nice to sit in a lecture of 600 students and know at least one friendly face. This semester I am blessed to be in a class with five other 4-H girls. Since I am the only 4-H House girl In many of my classes, I have the opportunity to share what the house is like and meet a lot of new [ ]

Emily Bloemer

Hi! My name is Emily Bloemer, and I am a freshman majoring in Agri-Accounting. I am from the lovely town of Heyworth, Illinois. In my free time, I love to spend time with my family, friends, and the outdoors. From the moment I interviewed to be part of 4-H House, I fell in love with the environment that this cooperative lifestyle encourages. I had girls that were willing to show me the tips and tricks of surviving freshman year, and the house truly became and still is a home away from home. While not participating in 4-H House events, I am actively involved with ACES Council as a freshmen ambassador, ACE Club, and Accounting Club. I was also elected as this year’s 4-H House Treasurer. One of the proudest moments so far in my college experience was becoming a JBT scholar. [ ]
