University of Illionis student Jocelyn Finnegan was astonished when she logged into Facebook and saw people making fun of Rutgers student Tyler Clementi after he committed suicide in fall 2010. "And it kind of disgusted me, that even in death he was being bullied. It was just kind of something that I was like, ok something has to be done at U of I."
Finnegan started up a Registered Student Organization, "Calling Out the Bull in Bullying." Now, this 2011 broadcast journalism graduate is hoping she can raise awareness about just how dangerous bullying can be and put an end to it once and for all.
"Faces of Illinois" is a series profiling students, faculty, staff and other campus community members who are leaving their marks on the University of Illinois campus.
