What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great school. I am currently enrolled and will be attending Illinois State next fall. I have visited campus multiple times and will be a student athlete next fall. The environment is great no crime, everybody gets along it is like it is one huge family.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I feel very welcome at Illinois State University. I always wanted to go here because my family went here and I couldn't think of any other place to apply to. My major is very hard, but I love what I am studying, but I would like to get more involved on campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Illinois State University is a university you are part of for life. As an alumni of ISU, I am still connected to many friends and faculty from my years on campus. The school upholds its rapport as a great school for learning and teaching. I have been supported by ISU's resources even after graduation, with paid professional development, references from former professors, and lifelong friends who I met during my time. I have fond memories of my time on and off campus as the town of Normal is so welcoming to the student community, offering up some of the best restaurants and shops! Overall, Illinois State University is an excellent place to be.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

ISU is very similar to high school. People here travel and act in cliques, and are very picky and uptight. However, some gems do exist here. Professors value their students (in the physics department) and do their best to help get their students off in the world. Everything that seems like it should be more popular is actually something more of a subculture, and instead most people here are carbon copies of the others.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

ILLINOIS STATE is a home away from home. Every professor, student, and faculty member has treated me and others with the utmost respect. It is clean and put together with many shops and activities to take part in. The scenery is beautiful and most importantly it is extremely safe. There are emergency posts all throughout campus and police are notified right away. I love the school I go to and wouldn’t change anything about it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Illinois State University is very positive. I am currently a junior and I just transferred this past fall semester. For only being here for one full school year now, this is the best education I have received and I have nothing but positive things to say about the school, the campus, and the town.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I generally like attending Illinois State. It is an excellent school that I feel balances both academics and fun. I have learned a lot about the college experience from attending Illinois state for two years now. The community and town is overall amazing. The town includes multiple restaurants, libraries, shopping stores, movie theaters, etc. There will never be a time of boredom here at Illinois State University.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My first impression of Illinois State University was wonderful, because I could tell that the people showing me around really cared about their school. I have multiple teachers that went there and are willing to sing Illinois State University's praises. It has made me want to go there.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love Illinois State. I chose it because it was close​ enough to home but far enough away to be my own person and the Creative Writing program had positive reviews. I always feel safe on campus, even at night. Although I have had some tough classes, I always had professors that were willing to help and wanted me to succeed.
