Illini News (UofI) Story on Robert Lane, Southland Director of College Admissions and Alumni Affairs (Summer 2023)

LANE FOR OPPORTUNITY ••• “What we have really tapped into is the notion of grit and perseverance,” says Robert Lane, the director of college admissions and alumni affairs for Southland College Prep. “Our students tell us that when they go to college, it might be a little less challenging because they had so, so much to do here.” 

Since joining the Southland staff in 2014, he has devised myriad ways to keep his kids focused on their futures, engaging them in the college selection process from the time they enter as freshmen and shepherding them on college tours—including expeditions to the U of I where they meet Southlanders enrolled at Illinois and everyone gets treated to Papa Del’s famous pizza. •••
