Corporate brand development | Walt Disney Co. | Class of 2002

You name it, Brian Jeselnick did it on the Quad.

"It's where I volunteered, relaxed, studied and kissed my sweetheart — and now wife — under the eternal flame.," says Jeselnick, a double major at Illinois (finance, economics) and an 11-year executive at the Walt Disney Co. now.

"Whether quickly walking to my next class with hundreds of other students or biking across empty sidewalks on quiet weekends, the space is beyond memorable. 

"The Quad will forever be an icon of the university because of its expansive lawn set among stunning buildings, but it will always be iconic to me for all of my memories."
