5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I am currently staying at The Grove in Moscow. I absolutely love it due to the location, parking, safety, and I was able to bring my dog with me. The Grove keeps me in the loop for events put on in the club house, and with those that are put on at the college.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I don't partake in the parties that occur on campus. Most are put on through the Greek Life fraternities, and I'm not affiliated with these students. I find the best parties to be off-campus, and with a close group of friends.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The variety of off-campus dining is one of the best parts about Moscow. Downtown Main Street is one of my favorite areas in Moscow. Especially for the Farmers Market that occurs during summer classes.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: I have rarely seen campus police actually on campus. However there haven't been many huge issues happening on campus, so I'm assuming the security is at the right level.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The process is relatively smooth, except for my experience with qualifying for work study. I would ensure that fellow students are aware of the acceptance dates for work study, and how the process of the waitlist on work study actually works.

Campus Food: The food in the commons is pretty decent. I like Einsteins the most. It's very convenient for when you don't have time to leave campus for lunch, or if you forgot your lunch at home.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Since I was a transfer student, I didn't have to make the decision to live on campus. If I would have had to choose, I would have chosen to live Greek. There seems to be more amenities when a student is involved with Greek life. There seems to be a more positive environment, the convenience of being close to classes, and the social atmosphere is typically higher than living in the dorms.

Campus Food: I felt that Bob's could definitely do better with their food. I personally got the same thing almost every night I went to dinner there; a hamburger or pizza. This was due to the fact that the other food didn't look super appetizing. I really enjoyed having flex dollars because they gave me the opportunity to eat at Denny's or go get sushi from The Grid when I wasn't feeling up for Bob's. I do feel that the meal plans or overpriced for the quality of food received at Bob's.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I lived in two different dorms my freshman year. The first being Wallace Residence Center, which was definitely not my favorite. This residence center was a suite style, with four students per suite with one shared bathroom among the four. I ended up with only one roommate, who was absolutely great. The rest of the social environment, at least in my hall, was not what I was hoping for my first year. I decided that I would rather live in the Theophilus Tower. This is strictly first year students and traditional style dorms, meaning one had a single roommate and community bathrooms. The switch to this dorm was a really easy one for me. All the friends I had made within the first four weeks of college were in this dorm, it was closer to my friends, and I felt like I was going to have a better experience. I was definitely correct. The friends I made my first year of college are friends that I can see me having for the rest of my life. The traditional style dorms force a person to reach out and make connections with the people you are living with. I couldn't have asked for a better living experience in Theophilus Tower.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The school should really do more to help the students find off campus housing.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: There is a wide range of parties but I wouldnt really know.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There could be more and closer to campus would be nice.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The things they should be strict about they are not.

3 College Freshman

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I had an average experience with it. Nothing special about it though.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Probably one of the most fun colleges.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Heard of some pretty bad violations, but nothing that was super crazy.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Took quite a while to get any update on my financial aid status.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: What you would expect from a campus food option.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The housing is alright, but not great.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: I mostly eat at Einstein's Bagels. They have really good sandwiches and smoothies. I've never eaten anywhere else on campus.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: I never lived in Campus Housing. I received a waiver.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus living is nice for that it saves some money and you do not have to request to live with someone like in the dorms. You get to choose with who.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

U of I opens up a lot of opportunities for students to get involved in different programs that actually impact the community and make a difference. Not only do you get a great education, but you also get the opportunity to meet some really great people. However, the location can sometimes be a bit of a detraction, so you really have to get out there and hit the ground running in terms of making friends and grasping opportunities. 

In terms of job outlook, U of I offers students many resources to prepare them for post-grad life. The Career Center organizes different programs, such as career fairs, and many departments in the school also create avenues for students to meet with professionals in their fields. These opportunities are especially open to students in different clubs on campus, so it's important to get involved. Different departments on campus also have guest speakers come to give talks.
