5 College Sophomore

Computers: There is a computer lab in almost every single building with printing. There are at least 20 computers per lab and the network reliability is awesome.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: I think that the strictness at SIU is more towards the harsh side but in a positive light. They look out for the students and work everyday for our success.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus was an interesting experience mostly due to the fact that I did not know my roommate. We were the exact opposite. The dorms are about 50 years old and they are still in good condition.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Everyone loves going to sports games

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Being greek has been the nest experience of college.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: We have free transportation but I drive

5 College Sophomore

Nightlife: You can do as much or as little as you want

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: We have one of the most diverse campuses in Illinois.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: German is a great major with helpful professors.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The professors are always willing to work with you.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Carbondale is the best. The natives are amazing people and love the college students. There is always a local event going on may it be an art show, concert or farmer's market. There are small local boutiques and an average size mall. There is the University's sports and about 20 minutes away there is a minor league baseball team which has cheap tickets and it a lot of fun to go to!

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There are drugs on this campus although it is nothing that I would ever be too concerned about.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I have not yet lived off campus, but am looking to do so next semester.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: It would be nice if they were more economical, out of state tuition is ridiculous.

College Student

Majors: I am just taking prerequisites right now.

3 College Student

Nightlife: I try to stay away

3 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: It would be nice if it were cheaper.

3 College Student

Scholarships: Apply as early as January to avoid a delay.

3 College Student

Local Atmosphere: I wish there was a huge mall close by. There is a mall, but completely isolated, just a few stores.

3 College Student

Athletics: Our varsity teams are trash. I don't play intramural sports but a lot of people talk about it.

3 College Student

Campus Strictness: I rarely even see police around and when I do they're just standing there bored. Nothing bad really happens for them to even be there.

2 College Student

Nightlife: It's very boring. There's always a lot of people out but there's never anything happening. Whenever there's a party going on it's never really fun. It's just loud music playing and people standing around outside

3 College Student

Greek Life: I really don't pay attention to Greek life. There are some that throw it in your face to act like they're better than others, but that's a rarity

3 College Student

Campus Housing: The showers are too small. The rooms are pretty spacious for first year students, but once you get used to it, it gets really annoying and jam packed
