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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Illinois state has many clubs and groups to get involved with, although it's a big school it has a small school feel and it's not hard to get involved. The campus is great and is over all a beautiful campus, the classes and teachers are great and very interesting

In all honsesty Illinois State was not my first choice in schools. However I’m very happy with my decision to attend school here. There are so many activities, such a great learning atmosphere, the academics are top notch and the campus and city are spectacular. There’s so much to do!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Someone who should not attend this school is someone who is not ready to leave home and undergo many hard changes. All ranging from having to put up with living conditions you hate to dining and other things you probably will not like as well. Also this school is not suited for people who are not use to or not okay with living in poorer environments. This environment is more on the lower class side so that is something to consider.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it, great environment, resources and teaching. There are on going opportunities that are provided through the university. Chances to get involved socially, get a foot in the work force, and even civicly engage yourself. If I could go through the college application process again I would choose Illinois State all over again.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have no regrets attending Illinois State University. I was a bit nervous coming to Illinois State because the University did have a reputation, at least from where I am from, that it is a very big party school and that I would be tempted to prioritize partying over schoolwork. From my experience I have deemed the aforementioned to not be true. My academic work became impeccable after I utilized the academic resources made available to the University students and joining a registered student organization truly helped me succeed in my academic work. The classrooms are small and the professors are always available -- I love attending Illinois State University.
