Its great to be a Leatherneck!

I'm Kassie Daly and I love working at Western Illinois University Quad Cities. As a Recreation, Park Tourism and Administration graduate from the WIU Macomb campus it has been great to tell students about the fantastic Western experience students can have here in the Quad Cities or in Macomb!

Before joining the admissions team here at Western Illinois University Quad Cities I was with admissions at John Wood Community College for almost 6 years prior to relocating to the Quad Cities with my family. I joined Western Illinois University Quad Cities in May of 2010 and I am so excited to be a part of a University that truly puts students needs first. My favorite part of admissions is helping students navigate the college process.
