Sala Sims

Founder | STEMSpring Academy

We say Illinois, Sala Sims says ... Quad.

“The memory that brings a smile to my face is sun-worshiping on the Quad,” says the former business management/marketing major and founder of STEMSpring Academy of Tampa, Fla.

“Did I miss a class or two taking in the sun and talking to friends for hours?

“Yes, but the energy on the Quad with students zipping back and forth was palpable and definitely one of my fondest memories as an Illini.”
