3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The most unique part about my school is being able to meet with different people of their cultures. UIC is like a small community where people of different parts of the world will fit into and not assimilate but to learn and respect other cultures and races. This is the biggest reason why I would want to choose my school again if I ever had a chance.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The professors are well educated and knowledge on their subjects. The course load varies from professor to professor but overall challenging in a good sense and a variety of class styles and sizes available.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Many job and program fairs presented on campus for students to attend and network with companies and potential internships. Also, great services offered at campus offices.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There are several security measures in place to prevent assaults and programs to deal with victims as well. Many great programs that demonstrate support and understanding to victims and create a safe place for them.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: UIC is known for being a commuter school. I have never dormed so I cannot personally comment on what the dorms are like but the best and most affordable option is to commute. Also, on campus housing is very expensive, it's almost half of the total cost of college.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is not a huge aspect of the school because it's more of a city based university.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: School spirit is apparent at school and games are a big deal. I believe the only reason they are not as big as other schools is because its a city based school which affects the athletics scene but overall still evident in student life.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I enjoy the open-minded atmosphere and the diversity of it all. UIC is more than just a University in the since that it's connected to the city of Chicago. The amount of events, resources, and activities is truly limitless and endless. As a student, you are constantly growing into a member of society that contributes to its success and thriving nature. Overall, amazing school with an endless array of options and opportunities to grow.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: The school itself is very safe during the day. The area around the school can be dangerous at night. We frequently get alerts from the school about people that are not affiliated with UIC committing robberies. Students are more often then not the victims of these robberies.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: UIC has done a wonderful job introducing me to new opportunities. Graduates with degrees in teaching history are successful and have a continuing relationship with the school. This relationship makes it easier for current students to network. It also helps that the school is well known and respected. A degree from this institution is well respected and means a great deal.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: From what I have seen the fraternities and sororities have a difficult time attracting new members. Usually, those who join live on campus. This is a very small portion of the student body.

2 College Junior

Athletics: UIC is a commuter school. This makes it hard to really get behind the sports teams. Most students are there just for class and then rush home or to work. The school attempts to attract students to games, but it does not seem to be working.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: UIC is a great place to learn. I chose it because of its proximity to home, and have been satisfied with my experience. I do however find some of the things being taught to be repetitive. I wish the school would be a little more open to new ideas.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Students at UIC of all backgrounds can find a way to relate to their peers and their surroundings comfortably

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Campus housing varies upon where the student stays whether it's within the student center east or more so off of halsted/taylorst/university village, etc.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: The greek life at UIC is what keeps the students motivated to attend events organized by students. They cheer up the crowd to make things loud and more fun. They treat no greek memerbers the same as greek members. Everyone gets the same amount of respect. I have observed the great community improvement they've accomplished around campus.

Overall Experience: The University of Illinois at Chicago is large campus, filled with a diverse student body. The school offers many opportunities that help students learn, expand their boundaries, and have fun at the same time. My favorite experience in UIC has been attending and event that celebrated the diverse latino cultures, this event was organized by different student organizations.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

The academic curriculum, the opportunities for research and international collaboration, and the cultural richness of the city are all things students come to love over the course of their experience at the University of Illinois at Chicago. From artists such as Ed Uhlir (who designed Millennium Park in Chicago) to professors conducting research in technologies that have come to affect people's everyday lives, UIC has and continues to produce many leaders in numerous areas of study. And although it has its flaws, UIC is always seeking to grow economically and academically.

Apart from its Research I Institution status, rigorous academic programs, and numerous internship and job opportunities, what further makes UIC unique is its ample diversity. Diversity in the student body and faculty, coupled with programs such as study abroad and student exchange, continue to propel UIC into becoming a world leader in technology, business, and politics, as well as in humanitarian and cultural affairs. Also, the opportunity to explore Chicago through the UIC Experience program allows students and staff to have fun and amazing adventures that create long-lasting friendships and memories. In the end, the success of UIC graduates in their future endeavors will always have its roots in the motto of the University: “A world class-education, in a world-class city.”
