Very nice school in Chicago, in a different area of Chicago than you'd expect. Lots of diversity, both in and out of school. The commons area(lunch room) is very spacious, and has really great food with a wide selection. Very close to green and red lines.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Illinois Institute of Technology is definitely the school for you if you're concerned about the academics and want to spend most of your time studying or working while still enjoying beautiful Chicago. It is a small school which means everyone knows each other and making friends is very easy. You definitely won't feel the sport or party culture that many other colleges have, but you can still have fun and receive a great education at the same time.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think IIT is a lovely small campus on the south side of Chicago. The campus has beautiful scenery and the building are very close together. I think that the social aspect of the campus is very limited in that not many people seem to talk to one another. IIT however is a very good school for Engineering and Architecture.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Strong academic background. Opportunities for research available. Ideal location close to downtown Chicago. Not an active campus- most student orgs have about 20 active members or fewer. Academic rigour is understated at IIT. Library is sufficient but nowhere close to impressive. Not too many great companies come to campus. Students will need to search for them themselves. IIT offers generous scholarships to domestic and international students. Overall, IIT offers everything one would need to lift off into a pathway.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, the Illinois Institute of Technology is a school fit for mostly non-partiers who enjoy studying more than go out to the city. The academics are top notch besides all of the politics that are thrown into the mix (very unnecessary when it comes to an education). The room and board options could be 10 times better and cheaper but the school does not put enough money and focus to the right stuff.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a great school for those who are serious about their education and are there to learn. There are those who mistake IIT for a "party school" but it clearly isn't so those people who are trying to turn up all the time just kind of sticks out like a sore thumb all the time. As an IIT student, I can also vouch that the diversity at our school is indeed high and that's one of the best things about this school, aside from the fact that one of the world's most famous architects, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe was affiliated with the program in the 1950s-60s.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Illinois Institute of Technology, or Illinois Tech, is a great school, especially for academics. It has great engineering and computer science programs, and does well to help you find internships and jobs. But, the facilities are poor, the food is very unimpressive, and the dorms are archaic. A good school, but you would think that it would be a lot better, given such high tuition.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall the school is great for those pursuing a degree in the STEM field. The class sizes are typically small, but there are some that are close to 100+ students, but those are usually only in your freshman year. The professors really know how to approach teaching their subjects and are more than willing to help you out outside of office hours if need be. The school does focus mainly on academics, so classes are rigorous, but doable. It's a big campus with modern buildings and has a small enrollment size. The school is also very diverse, there are students from all around the world, religions, races, etc. and it has a very welcoming atmosphere. There are plenty of clubs, activities, societies, sororities to join in on. If you live on campus you definitely have more time to get involved, but for commuters, depending on your commute time, that may be challenging.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The first time I have visited Illinois Tech was when I was a senior in high school. It so happened that my visit was during the winter break. The campus and facilities seemed boring to me at first. I have almost decided to give up on the school as one of my choices. However later that spring I got invited by the women's basketball coach to come out the the recruiting trip. Little did I know my perspective on the whole school would change and I would chose to become a Scarlet Hawk. Recruits were given a tour of the school, including academic and athletic facilities. Since IIT is a division 3 NCAA school general student population also shares the athletic facilities at certain times. The facilities feature multiple basketball courts, baseball field, turf soccer stadium, swimming pool and weight room. As far as academics go I was mind blown. Professors love to see their students succeed and are always ready to help. Not only is there help in the classroom but as well out of the class. The school offers free tutoring and the library is open for most of the day. Academic support is huge as IIT strives to produce future innovators. One of our notable alumni was inventor of the bar code. As far as student life goes there are multiple sororities and fraternities on campus. Campus is also located on the south side of Chicago which is easily accessible by the train. One of the great features during the summer is that we are about half of a mile away from the lake beach. School is a great mixture of college experiences as well as quality education. I could not imagine that the school that was on the bottom of my list turned into a school of my dreams.
