4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The area is nice and the students body that attends is very diverse however it is hard to meet new people from such distant countries.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The courses are generally hard but the professors are helpful. They are always available during office hours.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's really hard to get internships because of the competition.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Public Safety is always available and ready to escort people at night when they feel unsafe. Other than that, the campus is safe and I haven't heard of any sexual assaults.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus has been an awesome experience because everyone from the RA to the people in the building are extremely helpful and friendly. Never had a problem with a maintenance issue.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Everyone involved in Greek Life is really helpful and people don't discriminate. A lot of the people are part of Greek Life.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: It's not as big a deal as at other schools but a lot of people are involved in it. However, it's overshadowed by academics.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's a great school but the coursework is a little hard and extensive. The professors are extremely helpful and are concerned about how students are doing.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I'm not very interested in athletics, and don't have much experience with them so far. All I know is that most kids at my school aren't very athletic and it isn't a focus at my school.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Attending college has been a polarizing experience thus far. Between the intense workload and many new obstacles it has been very difficult to make friends or have a satisfying social life of any sort. Along with the high tuition of my college the last year has been rife with stress and anxiety. However, the classes have been extremely rewarding and all the new experiences have been vital to me growing as a person. I am happy living in a new city and having to adapt to a different style of living.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: Math classes tend to have more students because so many students have to take them, but for the most part the classes I've had (other than math) have been under 20 students and the professors have generally been helpful when I've come to them with questions. The websites used could be better for some classes, and it would be nice to see blackboard get better about accurately reflecting my grades, but for the most part its been pretty great.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: I actually can't say I know of any IIT alumni who had a hard time finding work or graduate school opportunities, we have a course students are required to take to get us farmiliar with career options for our major, and companies coming onto campus to recruit students as future employees.

3 College Student

Health & Safety: I actually haven't heard much about people being sexually assaulted or harassed on campus, or at least not by students, I've heard about (and experienced) being catcalled by people going through campus who live in the surrounding area. If I'm worried about my safety on campus its almost always because of people who don't belong on campus being on campus, which the school doesn't seem to do anything about, which is bothersome.

Literally the only time I have ever worried about being sexually assaulted on campus was because of some idiot walking through campus who started making lewd comments about my butt and legs while he was walking behind me.

Greek Life: I don't actually know anyone who seriously rushed and didn't get a bid from somewhere, but since the school has such a nonexistent party scene rush week is basically the only time most of the school even remembers that greek life exists. I think I've heard about one frat party in my whole first year of college, and that was one of two parties I knew of.

It's definitely a great environment and if you go greek your frat bros./sisters definitely have your back, but the greek life generally has a pretty nonexistent effect on campus

3 College Student

Athletics: To be honest, I don't even know what varsity sports we have at IIT because nobody pays attention, we just generally have better things to think about (homework is about two thirds of your life here), and really, most of my friends don't have an interest in sports anyway. Our athletic center caters more to non-athletes than athletes for that reason, and most of the students I know who participate in any sports are in intramural sports, mostly quidditch, which I'm pretty sure isn't a varsity sport anywhere.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: IIT is the kind of place where you will always get help when you need it, be it from friends, professors, or tutors. Your professors really do want to see you do well in their classes, and while there are a few professors who don't care as much, they're generally super friendly if you ask them for help, and they tend to pay more attention to how you're doing in the class once you've spent some time with them in office hours. I've had some physics professors who are fun to just hang out with in their offices when nobody's trying to get help, and it's honestly the most welcome I've felt anywhere.

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.

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.

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.
