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.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: People can be safe if they become more responsible.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are a lot of connections on campus.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am indifferent about greek life.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: We have the beat sporting programs and gyms.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school is a great and fun learning environment.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I'm not really around it, I wouldn't know, but it's college and people really don't care what you do so if you don't want to do drugs- then don't.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: There is always a party to go to no matter what year you are.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: They try hard to be inclusive even force the freshmen to take a course in diversity but overall student seem to stick with their own type.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The academics are very strong and everyone teaching seems to have a passion for their lecture content.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Immediate campus is pretty safe, especially if you're traveling in a group, but theres reports of people getting randomly attacked

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.
