4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is a huge part of my campus, it definitely puts a great vibe on campus and everyone is proud to be apart of their fraternity or sorority.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Everyone has so much school spirit for every sport!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My school feels like a home away from home.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: It is always best to go out in groups, especially at nights.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Most of the professors are cool and reachable when help is needed.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: In the college of Business, we have our own advisers to help us to look for internships.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorm rooms aren't too spacious, for URH, you have to go to the public bathroom on each floor. But it's good that you get to socialize.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I think people are proud of being a part of their on fraternity or sorority.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Whenever there is a game on our campus, the tickets sell out fast

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: At the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the most exciting thing is meeting new people. Everyone is from different places of the world and they are all brilliant. I have learned so much from hearing different people's perspectives and their past experiences.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: On campus, security is great! A few blocks away however it gets a little dangerous, but only at night. The police alerts are very prompt and helpful.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: There's a great variety of courses and great dimension of difficulty; easy to grueling. Fortunately, a lot of guidance is offered, though grading is scaled harshly.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: The value of a bachelors degree is dubious nowadays, but there are a good deal of opportunities offered at fairs. The career center is excellent for advising.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: We have a great on campus clinic which sends reminders for shots and checkups. It's like having our parents here without being present.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: The dorms are comfortable, amenable, and convenient; ISR in particular has an excellent location and atmosphere for engineering students. The only detractor from the experience is the knowledge of cost and dubious value.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have yet to have had a bad experience with a professor, yet most of my previous ones were great and I have developed bonds with them.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: As for recruiting students I definitely tend to advocate for my school wherever I go. UIUC is the best school in the country and from its diverse programs you know that a student attending will enjoy their time here. As well as receiving a degree from here the school has so many vast connections which will get you far in the field of choice.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life is rampant at my school, and has the mixed result of good atmosphere and covert, terrible and condoned behavior. Again, you can opt to be totally removed from the scene.

3 College Senior

Athletics: My school is big on athletic achievement and fan support, simultaneously, you can be entirely removed when you are disinterested!

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I would do it all over again if I could, bracing myself better for the academic load. It is an enjoyable school, but quite challenging.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I mean besides the constant construction it is perfectly okay where I live. Campus is changing so there is still the original feel of campus for those who may have attended before.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't really pay much attention to the Greeks but they seem okay on campus.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Great teams and great games.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I honestly love my school and wouldn't change it for anything.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I have learned a lot at school.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
