What is your overall opinion of this school?

It has a great campus with a lot of activities to do. There are a variety of clubs and organizations that you can join. They offer club sports for people who are competitive in a sport, but aren't on the college team. They have an amazing Zoology program and I can't wait to go back in the Fall.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I like the university I believe if the town of Carbondale was manged better the school would improve. Also, I think more people simply need to come here because it's not bad, you just have to get used to the area. Great people, amazing national parks, and fantastic education. Athletics are good, and there are lots of opportunities for extracurricular activities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

We toured the school in April of 2019. After a brief tour of campus, a dining hall and the aviation center and airport I was sold on this school. I said I did not meet my teachers, because I have not, being a visitor. It was easy to see that I will love being in aviation there. What really finished for me was the dorm opp of being with just the people in flight. I was worried I would not meet people and that was huge!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The Psychology and criminal justice programs were good, with knowledgeable and available professors. I loved it there my 4 years because I got involved in club volleyball and made so many great friends. It is a great place if you get involved in the multiple clubs and sports clubs SIU offers.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

SIU is underrated. It has nationally ranked programs (Aviation, Criminology, Geology, Journalism, Microbiology, Philosophy. Political Science, Zoology, to name a few) and we have been ranked in the top three percent of research universities. We also have a top rated library with four million volumes and fifty three thousand current periodicals. Add to that being located on the edge of a five hundred thousand acre national forest!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am proud to be a student at this university. There are plenty of opportunities for students to get involved on campus and with the community surrounding the campus. We have access to health care and any other services we might need, and the school does a good job of notifying its students about those services. We are in a small town, but we are a diverse university that welcomes everyone no matter what religion or sexual orientation they identify as. The student body as a whole and our professors are very accepting and welcoming of all students, and they make a point to emphasize it whenever they have a chance.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of SIUC is being culturally united. This school is so involved to invite students around the world to come here to educate more on what they'll pursue in life and be themselves. Be really cautious about the humid weather and large bugs here in the south here. Also, pack light to ease the 7 hour journey to this wonderful institution for the next 4 years.

Southern Illinois University has been suffering from lack of enrollment. With that being said, everyone has been trying to improve the schools physical and academic features to increase enrollment int the future. I enjoy attending SIU and I plan to graduate with my bachelors degree.
