3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Completing FAFSA as early as possible is important. I didn't receive any scholarships because most of them are both based on merit and need. Apply to as many scholarships that are applicable to you.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: Things happen, like they do on all college campuses, but there is a supportive environment on campus.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot of off-campus housing available to students. Some of the options off-campus is cheaper than staying in dorms. Because of the different modes of transportation near the campus, commuting is very easy.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The campus itself is very diverse. The dining options off campus are very diverse and affordable. Healthy/organic options are not plenty but are available.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: There's not really a lot of options in the meal plan from what I've heard from my peers but there are a lot of options outside the campus that are cheap. Finding healthy options that are cheap is available but limited.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There are a lot of restaurants near the campus. Transportation is done very easily. The dorms are okay. Some of the dorms are better than others. There is gym open to all students. There are two or three computer rooms in each building of the campus.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Greeks seem active on campus, but I'm not really involved.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Not enough people participate, but we have some neat facilities (one of the best views from a ball park, period.) and the teams give out lots of stuff to drum up an audience. It would be better if more people responded. :)

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: UIC is in a great neighborhood, and has a good sense of community - if you choose to participate in all the campus has to offer. I've found that everybody - from my spin instructor at the rec center, to the chancellor, to my professors in class, and my classmates have all been interested in creating a worthwhile college experience.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Great professors, most of the time. Lots of choices for my program.

College Junior

Greek Life: I'm not involved in Greek life.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Sports here are really good! The basketball games were fun!

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: It's better than on campus.

College Junior

Party Scene: I'm not really into the party scene.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: It consists of wonderful Greek and Italian food mainly, but also good affordable options, and healthy!

3 College Junior

Campus Food: There's a lack of variety, not many healthy choices.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I actually live at home.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Well I stressed enough the importance of enforcing the nonsmoking policy that the school has. This, that is my only complaint.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Sufficient measures for safety are taken care of by the university

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: If anything, eat out. The dining hall food gets boring and gross after a while. They serve the same things every few weeks or so, they always serve burgers and pizza... And the food isn't that healthy either, even though they serve vegetarian options. However, sometimes the food is good, depending on what you like. But the cost of the meal plan is expensive despite the mediocre food.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I was lucky enough to get into the newest dorms, JST, and it's wonderful to live in them. The campus is nearby and just down the street is the Field Museum, the Sheds Aquarium, and the Adler Planetarium. Within JST, the social atmosphere is pretty quiet, which is wonderful for a person like me who studies all the time. There are plenty of events to go to within the dorms, and everyone is friendly. While the cost is higher than the dorms nearest to the campus, it's still a bang for your buck.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The recreational center is amazing, it has everything you need.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Within communities nearby that are pretty safe.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The data retrieval tool is very useful.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: They are committed but no one on campus seems to be great supporters.

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.”
