  • Went here because it's a well-known brand in the Midwest that could give me more exposure to top companies in Chicago. The school clearly focuses more on research than on the undergraduate classroom setting. I transferred from a smaller university that emphasized a strong classroom experience. I recommend getting involved in groups and other extra extracurriculars to get a better overall experience. It's a big party school with a large fraternity/sorority presence. I can't wait to graduate so that I can move on to a successful professional career, which was my ultimate goal in coming here.
  • This is a great campus. I have been here several times. It never gets old. It is just a great campus that always exceeds my expectations for a university feeling as you walk the halls.
  • I lived here for four years and went to school here. This place has an amazing amount of opportunity and is a cheap place to live. Now that I've moved, I see college kids having to double up on rooms to pay rent that could afford you a one bedroom here. The students in Illinois seriously underate this place because they are afraid of seeing their old highschool classmates. Trust me, you wont. The downside is that this is rather expensive for a public university. So if you go here, you should take advantage of every opportunity you can. Otherwise you'd be better off going to a smaller, cheaper school.
  • Note: This is not a review of the school academic standing but more on the campus physical environment. My wife attended this school when she was 16 years old and so I decided to stop by for a quick visit as I was driving on I-70 to California. The campus looks like a ghetto, dirty and old buildings. The streets looked like they haven't been clean in ages. This campus is just plain old and dirty. It was probably much cleaner 20 years ago!
  • GREAT Campus, GREAT people, couldn't have spent my six years (Undergrad and Grad School) anywhere else.
