Actress | Lisa Alden on ‘Dallas’ | Class of 2012

We say Illinois, actress Amy Stoch says ... Round Barn.

“Aside from rooting around the glorious Stacks at the U of I library, the Round Barn on campus was my special place to go to think, take pictures and just listen to the past.

"It was a wonderful respite from the hectic life of a Ph.D. candidate at the U of I," says Stoch, who took the long way to Illinois, earning her Ph.D. in 2012 after an accomplished acting career that included roles on both the small and big screens.

Among her credits: stints on "Dallas," "Days of Our Lives" and "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure."
