What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think that Southern Illinois University Carbondale is a very inviting college. The students and faculty who work there make the campus feel like it is a home away from home. Everyone there makes you feel welcomed and is eager to help you when you are confused and in need of assistance. To sum everything up this is definitely a college that i would recommend people attend.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Great! I love Carbondale and the people on campus are so nice. The teachers have been so helpful to me. I feel like I'm actually cared about there by the staff. I do think that the food could be better but that's all I can really complain about in my first year at SIUC.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I do like the school but I do see a lot of room for improvements. A lot of people complain about the school but I am pretty well satisfied with it. I indulge in working out at the recreation center so I am usually always up to something. I think the staffing and school system is not great but not horrible. I wish I knew my teachers and I wish I had help available at all times, because at many points I felt that wasn't the case.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

They seem to have a lot of administrative issues, but the classes are great, the information is wonderful and the degree is definitely worth it. However, you may pull your hair out trying to get things done with anyone in the staff. They have great rankings for academics though.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

SIUC is the perfect middle sized school for those who want to attend a university that is neither to big or to small. A negative tho is that it is a college town that is pretty far from any metropolitan area. So if your from somewhere like Chicago you'll be a bit homesick. Also to be truthful the school tries to get a lot of money out of the students with expensive parking permits and required text/online classrooms. There also is a racist under tone at the school that nobody really speaks of but well and alive on the west side of campus as opposed to the east side which is a lot more diverse. All in all if you are reall serious about getting a degree and find yourself to be a well disciplined student immune to the great party scene here SIU could very well be the school for you. (Forgive the grammatical errors)

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'.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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
