5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This has been an overall fantastic experience for me. While it's a big school, there are plenty of opportunities to make a small community for yourself and reach out if you need the help.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The school has excellent facilities and teaching staff, that make the experience very fun and exciting. While the work is difficult, there are plenty of resources available to those that need help in the areas that have trouble with. Aside from academics, the overall societal part of the university is just as great as the academic standing. The only major complaint that i would have would be concerning the dorms, which are not worth what students are being charged for them.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Being such a large school, many businesses already flock to UIUC because they know that there is not only a large quantity of students, but also that the quality of those students is much higher than that of the average university. As far as getting a job after school goes, there are very few places that can compare to UIUC.

Health & Safety: For such a large student body, not to mention the people from neighboring towns that occasionally come in, UIUc seems to have a low crime rate in proportion of the amount of people that live in or around campus.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It is unfair to lump together all of the residences considering some of the dorms on campus are actually very nice. That being said, a large number of the buildings on campus are old, unclean, dingy, and overall not worth what the university is charging for residence.

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.
