Health & Safety: Campus crime is does't occur very often. Not a lot of things occur on campus. If so it is quick shocking. But for the most part police do ok with making sure everything is safe.

Overall Experience: Overall the teachers at siue are pretty good at helping students and giving timely feedback on work. The only downside is being in classes with teachers who don't speak clear english. That hindered me from passing a few math classes because I didn't understand my teacher.

Campus Housing: Living on campus is very convenient when walking back and forth to class. The downfall to living on campus is the constant swiping in specifically at evergreen hall when it's suppose to be considered an upper class men dorm but we're treated like children being hassled to swipe in. Another downfall is the RA system when trying to solve conflicts with roommates. It is not beneficial and it doesn't solve any problems. The RA's don't take the conflicts serious enough and it just results in students living unhappily in their apartments.

Greek Life: Greek life as far as black greek life is the only exciting thing that blacks look forward too on campus so they receive a lot of support from students. Other than that the greeks don't seem to host a lot of things on campus and I'm not sure why.

2 College Junior

Athletics: Our school doesn't have a lot of school spirit and our basketball team isn't the best so people don't really engage in attending any of the athletic games. The games aren't really hyped up so people don't like to attend them as much, which is also due to the music that is played and the constant games being played during breaks get annoying. I think the games focus more on pleasing guest or parents than the students, which is why many students don't go. I think that if our school had a football team that would add some excitement and possibly more school spirit.

Overall Experience: My favorite experiences at SIUE is being able to be apart of the national society of collegiate scholars it made me feel like I was doing well and on the right track. I wouldn't choose my school again because I don't feel that it is diverse enough as far as events that are on campus and the music that is played it isn't a large variety of music. I also feel like black people aren't supported at SIUE, which is actually resulting in the one and only black organization to possibly be taken away.

Health & Safety: I have not had a problem with safety on campus, I feel safe walking on campus and believe if anything happens the campus cops are here to help.

Overall Experience: SIUE and the faculty is very supportive and wants to see each and every student succeed. This is why they have career fairs, the career center, advisors and much more.

Campus Housing: I am glad I had the opportunity to live on campus, I not only made friends in my hallway but but other dorms. I appreciated living in a FIC, I have had several classes with individuals in my hallway, which was great because if any of us needed help we could help each other since we were taking most of the same classes.

Greek Life: Most of the friends I have made at SIUE are either in a sorority or fraternity. Being apart of Greek Life doesn't change a person. Greek Life tries to make a difference in the community, they have different fundraisers for different causes they support. I have had the opportunity to attend several fundraisers and I can say it makes a difference for not only the sorority/fraternity but the campus, community and the individuals or groups being supported. At SIUE non-greeks see the greeks just like them, they are students with goals just like everyone else. Lastly, there are no housing available for sorority and fraternity life.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I have had the opportunity to become friends with some athletes and they are some of the nicest people I have meet at SIUE . At the sporting events I have been to, SIUE has great school spirit and love to support their Cougars.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: After finishing my first year at SIUE I have had many opportunities and experiences I would not have received at a Community College. I joined a few clubs, attended sporting events and met many lifelong friends because of SIUE. The teachers are very supportive here at SIUE and care about all their students. SIUE is my home a way from home and I would not trade it for anything. I cannot wait to see what the next 3 years has to offer.

Party Scene: As a person who is underage, I am not really able to go to bars or anything of that nature. However, where there are frat parties, they can be pretty fun! The struggle is finding transportation.

Party Scene: I do not believe the party experience has a positive impact on student experience. I'm sure if everyone stayed in and studied as opposed to going out, grades would be better. However, I believe that it is good that people get out and socialize every one in awhile. Parties are pretty frequent off campus over the weekends.

2 College Freshman

Academics: As a student in the nursing program, things are very difficult. My professors are hit or miss, mostly miss. Some have accents that I cannot even understand. One of my professors legitimately did not know how many states were in the United States of America yet she is qualified enough to teach me statistics?? I do not think so. The workload is ridiculously hard, but that just comes with the nursing program. The study areas are great, especially the library. The library also has models I can study with for Anatomy and Physiology.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: I believe that everyone is accepted on campus. There is a lot of diversity around, and almost everyone is extremely okay with it. There have never been any instances where I have seen anyone being discriminated against. Although I am not a minority, I am very welcoming to those who are and those that have different views than I do.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: The policy enforcement for alcohol use is pretty strict. There are only two parts of campus that you can have alcohol in, and you have to be 21. If you are 21 and you are carrying alcohol from your car to Evergreen / your apartment in Cougar Village, it has to be in a bag so no one can see it. If a housing employee sees it, they have to confiscate it. It is their thought that it will promote underage drinking if it is not hidden.
