What is your overall opinion of this school?

Southern Illinois was a fantastic school! I was there for one year and I feel like in that very short amount of time I lived an entire lifetime! Living in the dorms is an absolute blast, off campus is even better, and no matter where you are there are activities or parties to be a part of. If that's not your scene then don't worry because the outdoors is always a solid option! That was my favorite aspect. We would go cliff jumping, rock climbing, hiking, kayaking, motorcycling, and so much more! 10/10 would attend SIU again if I had the chance!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

A lot of people like SIU, I'm just not one of them. I thought its small town country vibe would relax me but really the slow pace of everything drove me crazy sometimes. This is a perfect campus if you want a party-centric college experienced. Most people aren't really motivated to do well in classes and that bugged me. If those aren't problems for you, the food still probably will be, but its not 'hell on earth'.

I love the school and the town. Everything is conveniently located compared to the different housing options. I am in off-campus housing and it is decent just like most other housing units it has its ups and downs. Overall the experience has been good

What is your overall opinion of this school?

During my senior year of high school is when I noticed how serious life actually was. I believe adults forget how sheltered high schoolers are to the world. We're just told college is great and that they're your golden years. Those people are not wrong. I am having the best time of my life. I've never felt closer to the people I'm friends with now, than with the people I've known since middle school. I love being able to be busy and not be bored. I'll always have something to do. Whether it's a new paper I have to write or if I'm just going to the rec. But the problem is that we'rr not taught properly on how this thing works. We're not taught about how you have to take out loans and pay interest. Or the fact that if you screw up, that could be the end, because in middle to high school they just move you on until you finally reach a point where they no longer help you. At Southern Illinois, I feel like I get the help I've been dreaming of. I've never felt more at home than in Carbondale.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Very welcoming, very pretty campus, great academics, safe, decent housing and food. Some classes are bigger than others, but the honors program is guaranteed to have smaller and more interesting classes, especially for the core curriculum classes. There is a club for anything you can think of, no end of possibilities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Southern Illinois University is a pretty good university pending on what you'd like to major in. Bring an aviation management student (option not listed...), it was an amazing decision for me when compared to Embry Riddle personally since I reside in Illinois. The aviation department truly wants to see you succeed and wants all but the best for you. This was a very good decision that I made for myself, and being a senior now..I don't regret it!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The campus scene is incredibly wonderful, there are several student events which allow students to socialize and meet others. Campus housing is not a personal favorite, however off-campus housing is something to look forward to. Southern Illinois is an amazing rural community, which provides extravagant scenery among the presiding university.

As a current student here at Southern Illinois University Carbondale, I find this to be an excellent university to attend! I've had a great time so far, as a freshman, and the academics are great! As far as things to do around Carbondale; you have to really find something to do, but there's always something to do!
