What is your overall opinion of this school?

SIUC isn't what I would consider a bad school by any means. However, I do believe due to insufficient funding, the school isn't where it should be financially. This fiscial problem also partakes in the areas surrounding the school, as well. For example, a lot of Carbondale is rundown, and there isn't much to do. I know this is the states issue, not so much the universities, but the school is suffering. There is a lot of potential in SIU, but money plays a main role.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great school to go to if you are looking for a fresh start. There are some people who say that it is not because of the overall graduation rate but if you are a transfer student like myself then Southern is the way to go. The faculty seem friendly and approachable and the students that are there know what they need to do to make it the best school that there is.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I LOVE my school. Not only is the campus beautiful and immaculate, there are endless resources and opportunities! The campus is very diverse, very open-minded and very welcoming. If I had a choice to choose a college all over again, I’d always choose SIU.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

SIUC is an overall wonderful school that offers a variety of on campus activities and makes students feel welcome. The surrounding city is a great place to be when off campus and I've never felt unsafe while there. The food is amazing and the student life is wonderful.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Southern Illinois University is an amazing school, but just like all life events, it really depends on how involved you are. I participated in the marching band, volunteered for an animal shelter, joined a dance club, and took 18 credit hours each semester. I was very involved with the campus and campus life, so my experience allowed me to receive many opportunities that I might not have known about if I hadn't met the people from all of these groups. My freshmen roommate didn't participate in any groups and she struggled to enjoy campus life. College life really depends on how willing you are to try new activities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think SIU should do a better job of unifying their student body, as well as making sure that their students are unified and involved on campus. They have good resources for students such as getting jobs during and after college, tutoring, going orgs. and clubs, etc.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

SIU-C is a beautiful campus situated among plenty of woods, walking trails and lakes. It is a fairly large campus, but has a small school feel about it. I was impressed with the facility and administration during an open house event that my family attended. Students can get around on bike or walk easily around campus and buses are available to go into town for shopping and outside restaurants, although many places are accessible on foot. This used to be a big party school, but a lot has changed and I was totally impressed with the caliber of students attending. They have a great engineering program, which my son is interested in, and students can begin research their Freshman year. I was also very impressed with their Honors Program. This is a school worth looking at.

Southern Illinois University at Carbondale is a very good school. I recall that I got a letter from them that I got accepted there and it was one of my college choices. So, I decided to go there and work on my major. I been at the school since Summer and Fall 2017.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Southern Illinois University Carbondale is a wonderful school. My sister attended this school from 2009 to 2013, and I fell in love with the campus and surrounding community while visiting her. I then decided that SIU had my heart, and I enrolled for my first term in the fall of 2014. Carbondale has a small town vibe with lots of opportunities to enjoy nature throughout the area. While living on campus, students can live at Thompson Point and enjoy waking up to the view of Campus Lake every morning. The campus is very in touch with nature, and you can feel that just by taking a stroll to the Student Center through Thompson Woods. In fact, you may even have to slow down on your walk to let a deer cross your path.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It’s a beautiful campus and overall a great place to get good quality education. Southern hospitality at its finest! Classes aren’t too big and teachers can get to know you and offer all their help to make sure that students can succeed in their class and there are many resources to make sure of that.
