3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I generally don't feel unsafe on campus, there are the few occasions at night, but that is usually on every campus in every town. After 5pm you must scan into the building with your student ID leaving the buildings safe. We have a Health and Wellness Center that you can go to if you are sick. They also offer counseling/therapy which is nice.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love this school and wouldn't make a different choice if i had to.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Companies know that the average Illinois Tech student is hardworking; I do not know one student graduating who does not have a job lined up. Internships are usually easy to get as long as you work are willing to put work/effort into it. We have a great network.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Outdated, a work in progress

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: It's not the usual run of the mill public school greek-life. They are very friendly and open to everyone.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The school is working hard to expand and better the athletics on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love this school and would not chose a different school if i were to do the process again. The professors are helpful when you ask, they want the success of the student. I'm not going to lie, the classes are hard and depending on the professor and their exams i really sucks, but this is what is expected from IIT. Many students don't know what Illinois Tech is, but out in the field they do, and that's actually what counts. The school is trying really hard to improve where they can. One downside is that the tuition is expensive, but they give good scholarships.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: My campus is very diverse and everyone is very accepting no matter what.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drug and Alcohol will partake on any campus, it will partake any where even if it isn't on campus and for me it isn't a big deal, it has nothing to do with how much is present on campus it is all about you. If you don't want to drink it doesn't mean anything, they will not treat you different. Everyone on campus is pretty respectful of the things you want to do and don't want to do.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus, there are times where the school will notify us not to go to a certain place around the off campus during certain times due to safety issues. But public safety is always handy and very helpful when needed, they are willing to give rides from the library and from your dorm if you do not feel safe walking some place by yourself. There are the little boxes that you can push if you need emergency help. I believe campus is safe but just like anywhere else is it better if you do not leave late at night by yourself, have a buddy system when traveling off campus.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There aren't very many professors I don't like and if it comes to the fact that I don't like them it has to do with the fact that they just don't fit my learning style. I love the classrooms and the lectures hall. The professors that teach in lecture halls are usually very good and a like listening to them. All professors seem to have passion in their subject, and the quality of course is usually great, well so I think. There are a lot of offered courses, and you usually get what you want which is great about the school, you just need to email the professor let them know that this course only fits your schedule and that you need it, they can always figure something out. And, even if you don't get the class you wanted you usually have other great options. The main thing is to reach out, talk to the professor and get help and ask for advice. There is always someone on campus that can help no matter what, they are here for you. Class size is usually great, lecture halls are the ones that are filled with more students but the professor are great when it comes to big numbers.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Honestly, I can really rate this, I haven't looked much into it because I am a freshman and I am not looking for internships. But looking for on campus jobs is pretty easy, the school has a website where students can make their profile and search just about anything from internships to on campus jobs to off campus jobs. Very helpful and easy to use. I have never been to the career center but I heard it is very helpful and when you go to the fair you get lots of information.

Party Scene: Our campus is located between the Red and Green Line trains and other adequate transportation that will get you to and from the bar/club scene within 15 minutes there and back. We are literally 15 minutes away from downtown Chicago.

3 College Senior

Academics: This is college so expect to work.

3 College Senior

Diversity: This campus is very diverse but at the same time very very segregated!

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Well as a freshman and sophomore, you have a few options. SSV is great, you have a lot more space then if you live in MSV, you still have a roommate but you do get a little more privacy and you only have to share a bathroom with 3 other people rather than a whole floor. The problem with SSV is not that social, you barely know people on your floor unless you are friends or have classes with. It a lot less social and it does have to do with the more space you have. It is also kinda dark in the room, provide your own lamp, only on light in the room. Now with MSV, it is very social, it is great, you can go and live there and make friends right away with your friends, and it is cheaper than SSV but that would mean less space. You also have like very little privacy in MSV with a roommate and all.

I am not really up to date with the other housing options. And with getting the one you want, you using get what you want, which is kinda awesome about he school.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am not big on the Greek Life, but I know a fair amount of students that take part in it. They are all great, and can be very diverse. My school is very diverse and we have students from all around the world and Greek Life is a way for them to go around and be apart of something. Most Greek Life student eat and socialize a lot with there house, but also like to be involved in with regular school activities and non-Greeks. Their housing is right on campus, fair conditions, you can life their with a Greek roommate but as you go up you get your own room. Totally separate from school dorms. But still we are all connected.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I can't say much on this topic, I know Illinois Tech has its sports, but I am not really involved with it. There are a lot of athletes that will say other wise. I do know that everything here is big deal, they try to give everything the same amount of recognition. You can always find information on anything you need, on the websites, ask older students. There is school spirit, you can see that all the time but with everything.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Again, this campus is diverse yet segregated. The Administration needs to place more efforts in the integration and inclusion of all its students in order that cultures can be learned, understood and shared. This campus is just like the surrounding communities segregated.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love the Illinois Institute of Technology, I believe it is all unique a lot of spots on campus are filled with new technology that it surprises me. I would totally love to graduate from here with my bachelor's and it is my dream but when makes me not want to choose it again is that it is expensive and sometimes I feel like I don't have any help when it comes to figuring out my options financially. The staff is great, when you meet face to face they are the best they help as much as they can answer your questions and give you lots of advice. But sometimes they want you to email them and it is frustrating because when emailing them you feel like you are being ignored, and it often feels like they haven't helped you as well, I wish that they would treat emailing like if they were talking to you face to face. Being new to the city of Chicago makes me want to stay here, I like the professors, because a lot of professor are very passionate on what they teach and I wouldn't want to lose the chance of studying here.

1 College Senior

Greek Life: They do not offer Greek Life for all students such as Black American fraternities and sororities. They are not interested in having any Black fraternities or sororities on the campus of Illinois Institute of Technology either and that is because they are not interested in increasing the Black American population on this campus, which only makes up less than 1% of the total student population (not including Africans or Caribbeans).

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: This school could utilize a lot of assistance from other colleges such as the University of Chicago and Northwestern University, on the basics of campus life.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Illinois Institute of Technology mainly focuses on education and athletics are available but not a main priority.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: I haven't been here for that long, but so far, I have not heard of any issues with safety and healthy.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Most of my classes are somewhat tiny compared to the typical college class size. Professors are experts, but some can improve in their teaching method.
