What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the atmosphere of the campus. For such a large campus it still feels tight knit and comfortable. Everything is walking distance and public transportation is easily accessible. The dorms are very nice and safe. There's an app that if you're lost or are walking alone and don't feel safe, you can text someone and they will help and walk with you. The university has a wide variety of sports whether it's division or intramural sports. Many events like concerts or fun activities/ clubs are available.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I first came to Illinois State University, I was extremely happy. People are very welcoming and it just made it feel like I was at home away from home. There are so many things to do on campus it is insane. One thing that I would like to fix about the overall safety of ISU is the bus. A lot of the time the application for the bus does not work and many people have had to walk in the freezing cold to get to their destination because they do not want to be waiting on the bus. I would suggest fixing that. Other than that the school is so much fun

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Illinois State University is one of the top three schools I’m interested in for various reasons. I liked how the university is very inclusive, especially when it comes to the diversity of people.On a visit, everyone I interacted with had such high charisma and were friendly enough to where I felt like this is definitely a place I belong in. The campus here is very intriguing and I always feel undoubtedly safe when visiting. It is located in a friendly town that has all of your needs within a good reach, which I appreciate. Overall I would say that it is a wonderful university full of exciting new experiences when it comes to learning and the surrounding environment in general and would recommend to anyone else looking for the right college.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Illinois State is a good school for a public school. The classes as general sized and the campus is nice and taken care of. There are a wide variety of groups and extra curricular activities. I do wish I had smaller more intimate classes, however, I'm sure if I went to a private school that would have been available.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a great school. I'm a transfer student and just finished my first semester here and I feel right at home here. I wouldn't want to go anywhere else. The professors are always willing to help and do their job better than any other school I've been at. The students are very friendly and it's so easy to meet new people and make new friends.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Being the first child in my family to attend college, I was scared to make a huge decision by committing to a college. After hearing praise from others about ISU, I became committed. Since I want to become a English Teacher, I decided that ISU would be the perfect fit for me since they pride themselves on teaching and education. I am glad that I am at ISU and I am hoping that the other future college student in my family will join me at a place like ISU where family and legacy are important and honored.
