4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Most people are pretty average, just like everywhere else. There are a lot of different people.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: First things first, the campus is beautiful and makes everyone never want to leave. I haven't really been in a lot of the buildings or around a lot, but even just passing through, it's easy to see that campus is friendly and upbeat.

Athletics: The athletics here have great fans! Nearly everyone on campus gets pumped up for the big game - it creates a great atmosphere.

Greek Life: Lots of people like the Greek life. The beautiful houses add a lot to the campus (and they get their own special parking, which is ridiculous). But it just isn't for everyone. In my opinion, they do more bad than good.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: I don't go to parties, so I wouldn't really know. But from the noise and stories... I hear UI is a big party school. But then again, so is every other school in the country. If you want to find alcohol, you can easily. But it isn't hard to stay away from either.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: they don't handle it in the best way. The people in charge aren't clear with prices and how they have to report

5 College Sophomore

Majors: My program has to be the best thing that I have ever been able to take part in. If I could do what I have done all over again, I would. My career goal is to be a 3d modeler/concept artist for characters or creatures. I don't have any real concerns about finding a job in my field because as I am graduating from college, the predicted amount of jobs in video gaming is going to skyrocket from what it currently is.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: Getting into my program was simple, fun, and when I spent time up at the University during Vandal Friday, I was able to talk to my instructors and get a feel for what the program would be like.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Students are very diverse and there are niche groups of people for every imaginable type of person out there.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I have not personally lived off-campus yet, but a few of my friends lived in an apartment that I spent a lot of time at, and more of my friends have grouped up in an apartment that they enjoy very much. From what I am told, cost-effectiveness is very good for a students who have part-time jobs, and the landlords are friendly and polite.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have not yet had to use the services of the health and safety departments on campus, but from what I hear, they are great and efficient in what they do.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Sodexo owns most of the fast food places off-campus, and those tend to close around 10 p.m. during the week and weekends. As for other restaurants, so far I have fallen in love with Tokyo Seoul, Gambino's, The Alehouse, Blues' Brew & BBQ, and Beck's Cafe and Catering, which I am employed at. Costs are very good for students, and each restaurant has a different environment and very friendly staff who are easy to talk to and have a conversation with.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: My VTD instructors have been some of the best I could ask for. They have challenged me and shown how much they care about how I do in the courses. As for my general education instructors, a few of them have been great and I have really connected with them, but there have also been others who have been too harsh or a bit hypocritical in their teaching methods.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I don't think you can find a better major than Virtual Technology/Design at the U of I. Homework is mainly project based, so while you have a lot of time to work on assignments (2-5 weeks most times), you will need to work on it for the entirety of the assigned time if you want to do decent work. Virtual Technology/Design covers such a wide variety of job areas that with this degree, I could work in anything from video games, to graphic design, to movies.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Wallace dining could be better, but with Denny's right across the lawn next to the Tower, there are quite a few food dining options for a student to choose from.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My favorite experiences at school so far have been in my degree classes and being with all of the friends that I have met on campus. There has never been a dull moment, and the instructors for my degree courses have been some of the coolest and friendliest people I have ever met. I don't think I could choose a better program or degree.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: I never expected to see so many different cultures

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The campus is one of the safest places I know.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I love my major. You also have the option to double major or minor in other categories.

Majors: I am only a freshman and have little experience.

3 College Freshman

Academics: As I am only a freshman, I do not have a ton of experience yet.

Drug Safety: I feel safe here and never judged.

2 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The police are extremely persistent. They dress up like us and try and blend in to catch people drinking. They will even hide in the bushes and jump out and chase people. It is absolutely ridiculous. I understand their presence is necessary, but not to this extent. They really just make it more difficult for people to make it home safely.

Athletics: I am not involved in many athletics at my school.

U of I opens up a lot of opportunities for students to get involved in different programs that actually impact the community and make a difference. Not only do you get a great education, but you also get the opportunity to meet some really great people. However, the location can sometimes be a bit of a detraction, so you really have to get out there and hit the ground running in terms of making friends and grasping opportunities. 

In terms of job outlook, U of I offers students many resources to prepare them for post-grad life. The Career Center organizes different programs, such as career fairs, and many departments in the school also create avenues for students to meet with professionals in their fields. These opportunities are especially open to students in different clubs on campus, so it's important to get involved. Different departments on campus also have guest speakers come to give talks.
