My name is Evangelia Tsipas and I graduated from U of I in May 2012 with a Bachelor’s in Communication and a Business Minor. During my four years I was heavily involved in OCF and Illini Pride/Orange Krush (Go Illini!). OCF will always hold a place in my heart as one of my favorite aspects of my college experience. I gained a lot of knowledge about the Orthodox faith, participated in some great events (Saints Blitz, Retreats, Relay for Life, etc.), and met lots of wonderful people—many of which I am blessed to call my best friends! Now that I’ve graduated, I have a full-time position at a start-up technology company in Chicago, Fieldglass, Inc. As a member of the HR team at Fieldglass, I facilitate new hire orientation, maintain employee benefits, update current policies and procedures, serve as the go-to person for employee inquiries, etc. I really enjoy my job and am thankful for the preparation I received from my experiences at U of I these past four years. Be sure to enjoy every second of your time in Champaign-Urbana…it goes by faster than you think!
I graduated in 2010 with a degree in Economics, and a Minor in Business. I was involved with several organizations with at UIUC, both academic and spiritual. I was highly involved in Business Council and served as the President of Entrepreneur Without Borders. I also served as OCF Vice President, and OCF President. OCF was vital in my development as a strong Orthodox Christian, and has prepared me to continue being active in my faith, post-college. I am currently a Pharmaceutical Sales Representative with Eli Lilly and Company, and a member of the OCAA board.
