What is your overall opinion of this school?

If I did not love Illinois State University, I would not be enrolled here. I fell in love with this school the minute I arrived. With that being said, it does not mean that ISU does not have its unique attributes, or flaws if you must. But perfection is is a mind-set, it's a man-made concept. Perfection to me could mean hell for the next individual. Perfection is constantly being redefined depending on what it is that needs to be perfected. My overall opinion of Illinois State University? The fact that it is imperfectly perfect is the best rating that I could give it. It is an amazing, evolving, and accepting campus that I would not change anything about.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Illinois State University is an exceptional school. These questions do not really do the campus justice. There are various schools within the university, so even if you aren't sure what you want to major in, there is enough around the campus that may inspire you to choose a major. As for sporting events, there is always something going on. There is hardly a moment where there are no sporting events going on. Same goes for campus activities. There is always something to do from campus sponsored events, to department events. The nightlife around the area is also pretty hopping. So many places to eat, drink, or find entertainment. Illinois State University really has a lot to offer, even if you're not sure if something is your scene, try it. You may never know.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Illinois State University is that it feels like home. It is close to home and is much like high school. I know lots of people and my teachers are always readily available to help. Illinois State brings people together and makes living away from home easy and affordable.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love my college. The campus is so pretty and it is big but not overwhelmingly so. There's always something going on and the teacher education program is amazing. You're right next to uptown Normal so there's fun shops and places to eat, and I love having the train station so close.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe Illinois State has room for growth. Some faults that lies within the university is the meals they serve and the housing situations. I lived in a quad and I have to say the room size is entirely too small for four people to stay. Approximately 2 to 3 people left living in a quad every semester. In addition, the dining center has no regards for individuals who are vegan. The only comfort food to chow down on is pasta or a salad; and that's on a good day.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Illinois State University is a great school. It is an amazing size and you really get the college experience. Everyone I meet does really well in their classes but they also know how to have a good time once their priorities are straight. I enjoy walking around campus because it is so beautiful. There are also a lot of job opportunities on campus so working there is nice. I love this school and so do so many other people. I am so glad I chose ISU.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Illinois State University is an overall good school. The campus is small, so it's quick to get around from one side of the quad to the other. Most teachers keep regular office hours, and they have no problems in seeing students that need help outside of class. In the town of Normal, where ISU is located, there is a variety of shops and services. There should be no problem finding something in the town if it's needed and the city of Bloomington is right around the corner. The real pull to Illinois State is the top quality in teacher education. Illinois State is one of the best schools to get an education if planning a career in teacher education. Illinois State University is an excellent school and highly recommended.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe Illinois State University to be the best school for someone like me. It is a school that looks after its students, help them in their education, financial status and with any problem that they have (deans and counselors).This school also makes me feel at home and I believe i can become a great and successful person after learning there.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I knew I was going to like Illinois State because of friends who were already enrolled, but I didn't know I was going to love it! The campus is so easy to get around, the teaching staff is great, the food in the dining halls is good, and housing is well managed. I'm getting an excellent education that is not putting me or my family into tremendous debt. I cannot say enough good things about my experience. I am looking forward to my next three years with enthusiasm!
