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.

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.

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.

3 College Student

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

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.

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.
