4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Everything is nice and new.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I wish there were better ways to get scholarships.

3 College Junior

Athletics: We have a decent sports atmosphere. Students, families, and locals show support in the beginning, however, the events become dull towards the middle of the season. The athletes that participate in these events are fairly good maybe average compared to other division 1 schools.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Southern Illinois University at Carbondale is a great school. The campus atmosphere is very laid back and sometimes even exciting when there are huge events. The professors are great at teaching us the basic fundamentals of any subject they lecture on. The teaching assistance are also extraordinary as well. They go in depth on about subjects relating to the course. From my personal experience, I enjoyed Southern. There is diversity on campus. People are nice and respectful to others. Everyone at Siuc knows how to enjoy themselves. Lastly, the tools and programs that are given to the students are extremely helpful toward its students education. Overall, I recommend students, who like diversity, excitement and a good quality education to attend SIUC.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: This school is unique in the way they teach us. Professors want every student to do what it takes. Willingness to help you get to where you want. They also are hands free in some situation. make you think for yourself

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school provides a great learning environment and any kind of help someone could need. our diversity of courses is amazing and our housing is broken up by major so your roommate is likely to have the same classes as you

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: the school provides great opportunities for internships, as a theater student, I have the opportunity to work at Glimmer Glass on broadway over the summers as well as many summerstock theaters around the county.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Police walk and drive around campus constantly to ensure our safety. additionally carbondale police make regular rounds at the dining hall and around the housing facilities even in the evening and night.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love living on campus, having friends and class so close by is amazing. I only walk 5 minutes to most of my classes which gives me time to sleep in and extra time to review for class before each lecture. RA's are fantastic and really helpful, the dining halls are across the street and serve fairly decent food and have games and a gym in the basement as well as area council meetings and fun events.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: many students enjoy the greek life on campus, our frats and sorority's require high GPA's and community service to remain active and many students volunteer their time all around the community

4 College Freshman

Athletics: many students come here to play football, lacrosse and basketball. our sporting events are well attended and school spirit is high enough that people say "abSALUKI" instead of absolutely. our rec center is well equipped and has a pool, weight gyms, a climbing wall and an equipment rental for those who want to go on excursions into the massive state park only 10 minutes from campus

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: the school has a surprising support for its arts, many schools I looked at had very little money in the theatre departments. professors are wonderful at explaining in depth and complicated topics to those who didn't quite understand. office hours are encouraged for students to attend by all professors I've had and advisers are very knowledgeable and easy to get along with.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've enjoyed most of my courses, all of the professors were very interesting and seemed to have a passion for what they were teaching.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There are several security poles located on campus incase of emergency. Also, campus police are always patrolling, generally I feel pretty safe.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Well balance between social and educational life for greeks.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Not the best...not the worst some teachers care more than others. Makes you think about life at a different perspective.
