3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Not terrible but not great either, many dorms still don't have air conditioning.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The University of Illinois is a very big which at first can make it seen overwhelming, but it is really a positive. The campus is very diverse with many clubs and a wide variety of classes and you learn to make it seem smaller once you find the clubs you like.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Awesome engineering college. However, business college do not welcome non-major students

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Every campus have their crimes. UIUC is another school in that category, the world isn't perfect and things happen. Campus police, security, and student and professors work together to spread knowledge and to prevent crimes from happening. For example, many freshmans have to attend a couple of session such as I-connect in which students are talking to students about issues that may come up in their college career and discuss how to prevent and tackle them.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors are always available to assist their students. They hold office hours every week in which you can either go to them for assistance or just to discuss some matters.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The value of the degree is everything at UIUC. All the money spent to get an education and all the hard work, the prize at the end of all the struggles is the diploma. Students sacrifice sleep, and often stressed to achieve a common goal to graduate and to get a job that makes them successful.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Campus life is very social. Everyone connects through various of ways. They may connect from class, hanging out or partying. UIUC is very diverse therefore allowing for all people of different ethnicities to come together as one.

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.
