4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Going to school at Illinois State has been a great experience and I wouldn't consider going to any other school.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Our classes are really great. The teachers know what they are talking about, and most of the material is interesting. It's easy to get a good grade if you actually do the work. With that being said, it is also easy to fail if you don't put your all into what you are doing. The grading system is also very fair.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are many social media sites that are set up for post graduate students, and there are a few that are exclusive to my school because some companies love to hire students based on reputation. I think it would be relatively easy to find a job, especially with all of those resources.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There are emergency phones located all around campus, so that is definitely something that makes me feel better when I am walking alone. I try not to walk alone at night, but if it ever has to happen I just make sure I am aware of my surroundings. I think there can always be some sort of danger on a college campus, but you just have to be aware of what is going on and don't do anything you are uncomfortable with.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The location of the dorm building I lived in is so nice-- it's very close to the quad and all the classroom buildings. The rooms were a pretty nice size, and it was very easy to make friends since everyone is so close in proximity.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: All of the sporting events are so much fun, but the football games are my absolute favorite. Our school mascot does a great job getting the crowd excited, and our team is very good and have been undefeated the past few seasons so that definitely makes them that much more interesting to attend and draws a huge crowd.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My university is somewhat big, but since it's in close quarters I feel like it is small at the same time. I like this factor because I am used to a small school, so it made the transition not as scary as I originally thought it would be.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I believe ISU is a very safe school, I am not afraid to walk across campus late at night by myself, although I do sometimes call my friend as I walk home just to be on the safe side

Greek Life: I don't know much about ISU Greek life, but from what I've heard from others there are many social and business fraternities and sororities. I know we have some of the most recognized business fraternities.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: ISU is one of the best schools I have attended. Everything you need is on campus or just a bus ride away. Teachers care about your success, and some will go out of their way to help you out. I have made many friends including my best friend and boyfriend.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have just recently applied to ISU to utilize the MCN online studies for RN to BSN. As a Non-traditional student, returning to school while continuing to raise my children and work part-time; having the online option for classes is an excellent way to continue my education without losing out on time spent at my job and with my family.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It is a good school the teachers and students there make you feel welcomed and you have a great time.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have been to many seminars that spread the word. Sexual assault is a huge issue and I'm glad there are so many people taking a stand.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have had some really great professors and I have had some that are way too easy, which I guess is OK, but I didn't learn much.

Illinois State University holds a dear place in most of its students' hearts, due to the care and help the University provided them along the way. ISU wants to see all of its students succeed and does its best to make that happen. Therefore, the University equips students with learning tools so they can become their very best. ISU is home to some of the most proficient and helpful professors, and the relationship between teacher and student is one that has been praised. Students know their professors care about them, and professors know how important real-life advice is to students. The students have the will to learn, and the teachers provide the necessary tools for the real world after college. This relationship is very powerful, and one of the main reasons students would recommend ISU over any other college.

The University also helps with available internship opportunities and career advice, which is what makes ISU different from many other colleges. When students graduate, they are able to fill up their resume with corresponding professional experience they maintained while attending classes. The Career Center also provides students with real-world advice by hosting mock interviews that allow students to know what employers are looking for when they hire people. There are a number of career and internship fairs that let students hand out their resumes to potential employers and also allow students to see what kind of opportunities are out there. The University encourages each student to grow as an individual, and students flourish at the fact that they are treated like young professionals rather than children. From the outside, ISU may seem like the typical state school, but once you are here, you realize the unique character it possesses. Students are proud to say that they are from Illinois State University.
