5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I genuinely enjoy UIC. I got used to the diversity in high school, since I went to one of the most diverse schools in the city, so it wasn't too much of a difference at UIC. My favorite experiences are with clubs and organizations because they let you connect with the campus in a non-educational way that I feel is necessary for any positive college experience. What makes UIC unique is the nearby city life. Since it is considered a commuter school, it mixes all kinds of people with all kinds of experiences and life styles. By befriending different types of people, you get to explore different parts of the city that you never knew were so close to campus and so interesting. I would choose this school all over again because it feels like everyone is included in the UIC life in some way.

Overall Experience: My overall experience has been enjoyable. UIC offers a diverse environment and curriculum that is also challenging. Membership in one or two of the vast organizations at UIC are essential in creating a well balanced social circle for one's self. UIC has ranked as the number 1 business school in Chicago year after year. I believe I am getting the best possible education in order to be successful in my field of study in my postgraduate years.

Overall Experience: I've enjoyed many of the people I've met here at UIC, especially through the Honors College. I love the location of UIC--close enough to downtown, but far enough that it still makes the city special.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My experience at the University of Illinois at Chicago has been great so far! I love studying my major (architecture) in Chicago. I also got the opportunity to do cheerleading for my school this year which was one of the best experiences of my life! The only thing holding me back from truly enjoying college is my financial situation.

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.”
