Health & Safety: I feel safe, but I personally know that the school's party scene has a lot to do with the sexual assault issue. But as for safety, there are a lot of transportation resources and ways to stay safe on campus that are known to students.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I would say that the University of Illinois is an overall good school. Good social and academic aspects create a nice lifestyle to be a part of. But for what it offers, in-state tuition is so high that I'll be in debt for years after college. With a little higher than average rating, I don't think I should have to pay as much as I do for living in-state. I would be much happier if this school didn't hurt my bank account so much after college.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I know that the University of Illinois is highly respected and I know I can find job opportunities after college. I may not be doing specifically what I love or studied in college, but I know this degree will help me with my future occupation.

Campus Housing: Out of personal experience, I was moved into FAR my first year at the University of Illinois. As sad as it is to say, it ruined my first semester experience in college. It was hard to make friends, everyone/everything was so far away, and the rooms were small and a little old/gross. I didn't even put FAR on my preference list, and I felt that I was the last pick and thrown into a place that I wasn't happy at. I also think being so far from classes and the social scene negatively affected my grades because of the hassle each time I went to class. I was not impressed with FAR Campus Housing what-so-ever, but I was impressed with the IKE and everything it had to offer.

Greek Life: Most people that aren't in Greek Life don't realize how much the sorority or fraternity does to give back! There are hundreds of philanthropy events, and a lot of support that comes from friends gained by joining Greek Life. Yes sororities and fraternities may throw good parties, but that is definitely not all they are good for here on campus!

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I think our academic programs are great, but the teams performances need to get better! The better the team, the more kids will want to attend! I love the opportunity that athletics offer at the University of Illinois, but we need to bring in some wins!

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I think the University of Illinois- Urbana/Champaign isn't all that it's cracked up to be. It may be the #1 party school, but I don't agree with that because there are many other schools that "party" harder. It also may hold high standards academics wise, but I think it all depends of the major that you are pursuing. I think this school accepts students with lower grades/scores just because they are from out-of-state or have different ethnic backgrounds. When in my opinion, it shouldn't matter where someone is from nor what they look like in order to decide if they should be accepted into this school or not.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: In all honesty, I believe that the university I am currently attending is very useful and probably one of the best choices i have ever made. It is a place where people get along and a place where education is taken seriously, especially with the fact that we have a great education system. i have not yet been dissatisfied with anything at this school. I really enjoy it and feel as if it is a school that anyone can accustom to. Just because of the fact that it is easy to get along with people here, it is easy to approach someone when help is needed, or if you just have a question. I also have enjoyed all the classes I have taken. It is an amazing choice I made to attend this school.

3 College Sophomore

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

One might expect some tentative and even negative opinions about any school, but this is truly not the case here at U of I. Students are proud of U of I’s history, proud of is academic accomplishments, proud of the social opportunities it offers, and, most of all, they are proud to be alumni. For so many students to view their choice to come here as an unequivocally good one is a fantastic testament to the University’s strength.

Of course students here have plenty to complain about—the weather, the parking, the Greek social scene, the rural location. But all things considered, the positive points of the U of I experience tipped the scale—the University’s academic excellency, the safety, the social atmosphere, the athletic tradition, the city’s excellent transportation system. Some students admitted that they had a hard time adjusting, that they occasionally wished they had made another decision—but in the end, they were all happy to be here. The most encouraging fact was that so many people mentioned that they were leaving as better people, more knowledgeable, eclectic, and better equipped to navigate through life. University of Illinois students do not just leave with a piece of paper in their hands, they leave with a wealth of experience that is not easily rivaled—and, for in-staters, without enormous debt burdens to face when they graduate.
