Campus Housing: it is not comfortable sometimes such as: noisy, hard time to get bathrooms, equipment not update... But it is convenience walking to school, and can stay late in school

Greek Life: There are about 8 fraternities and sororities on campus. The atmosphere is very social for Greeks and they're very eager to have people join their chapters. Most of them are nice people but there are a couple of Greeks who are rude and/or uninterested toward Non-Greeks when they are at the Greek house as a Pledge. The Greeks do have a motto of being a contribution toward the campus and host philanthropy events for the campus. Greek housing is definitely cheaper than the dorms.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: There are a decent number of sports teams. From what I've seen, many people in the school do not care about sports or show any spirit for them. I myself do not care about the sports.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Strict about students' safety. There are policies dedicated for the well-being of students.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: IIT is very generous with its financial aid. I've received a full tuition scholarship.

College Freshman

Party Scene: IIT is not a very big party school. The only parties I know of are events held by sororities and fraternities.

Campus Food: The Commons consists of a variety of foods including the everyday usuals such as Pizza and burgers. The pasta station changes its ingredients everyday. The main entree for both vegan/vegetarian and non-vegetarian people has something different everyday and also changes for the different meal peiods. For example, the lunch entree can consist of Tilapia and rice while dinner may be meatloaf and mashed potatoes. As a freshman during the first semester, I was so excited about the Commons. Never before in my life was I able to have buffet meals all day, everyday. However, after one whole semester of eating at the Commons, I, like many others became tired of it. I had the 14 Meals A Week Plan. This plan gave you 14 Commons meals every week and about $175 in bonus points that can be used to buy food and drinks at other dining areas on campus. I only recommend to get the The 14 Meals A Week Plan if you know you will be eating in the Commons 14 times during a week because unused weekly meals expire at the end of the week. I didn't eat all 14 meals every single week, so I had a lot of unused meals. If you know you won't be eating 14 times every week and have a taste for the food offered at other dining areas like Talon's or Center Court, then I recommend getting the Create Your Own meal plan. It's around $150 cheaper than the 14 A Week and lets you choose how many total meals and bonus points you want. You start off with 175 total meals for the semester, and you can convert as many of these meals to bonus points you want at a rate of 7 bonus points/meal. One bonus point equals one dollar. Note that when you convert meals to bonus points, the value decreases. Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner have different prices in the Commons. For example, breakfast is around $7 while lunch or dinner is around $10.95. So, when you convert a meal to bonus points, you're basically losing around 3 or 4 dollars. So convert wisely and be sure to leave yourself a decent number of Commons meals.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: The social atmosphere isn't the best. Some people keep to themselves and aren't very talkative, including my roommate. This is, however, dependent on which hall you live in. Some halls are more social than others. The RA's try to organize social events -- both on and off campus -- to keep the social environment alive. Examples of social events include Pancake day, crafting items, going out to watch a movie, etc. Unless I'm very occupied with my homework like I usually am, I feel very depressed living on campus. There's nothing here for me to enjoy. Therefore, I go home for the weekends in which I have free time. The standard rooms aren't very spacious. The mattress does not even feel like a mattress. I wake up every morning with my back and neck hurting because of the stiff mattress. The toilets and sometimes the urinal will be out of order every here and then because of someone clogging it, forcing the rest of us to go to other floors to use the bathroom. The cheapest room option is around $2800 per semester. Meal plans are mandatory for undergraduates living in the standard housing. Meal plans are around $2500 per semester. The housing office takes care of many of the problems/issues you may have by contacting them. The housing process is pretty easy. Not a lot of paperwork required.

Off-Campus Dining: IT'S CHICAGO! The possibilities are endless! It depends on you to find a good restaurant though ( there are many ).

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: A disabled student can get into any class and can have a room on the first floor of the MSV dorm, and also any floor of the SSV dorm and others. The city of chicago is at your diposal, whether its Greek town, China town, Little Italy, Vietnamese town, Down town, Navy Pier, a club, a bar, a hukah bar, the best pizza restaurant, millennium park, one of the numerous beaches, etc... You'll have a good time.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Campus food is campus food. I would rate this school in the top 25% of colleges cafeterias. Its a college cafeteria... get over it the food will be bad and good some days. I always find something that I want to eat. People here do complain but I think their complaints are insignificant.

5 College Freshman

Academics: This school is great if you're planning on staying in the Chicago land area. No matter what you choose i'm not sure if I've ever heard of someone making under $45k after they graduate. Its a well known tech/engineering school in Chicago. Its a 99.9% guaranteed success at getting a job in your field after you graduate. Homework after your first year mostly consists of projects. Your first year it mostly consists of small assignments like high school. As long as you show respect towards your professor they're lenient on attendance.
