My opinion of my school is that it is very chill here! We have tons of activities almost every night and they are very fun and a great way for you to make friends! The food is actually amazing, and the housing is perfect whether you have a shared bedroom, private or studio!
I honestly do not have much bad to say, it has been the best choice of my life and I am so glad I get to learn at such an amazing place. From the amazing staff to the great vibes form all the other students the experience while being there has made me a better person and even more excited about my career path.
It’s a great place to be! I am happy that I chose SIUE, and I feel that I am getting a well-rounded education. I am extremely pleased with the SIUE School of Business classss and faculty. It is a great source for support and encouragement. SIUE has been the place for me!
SIUE is located only 20 minutes outside of STL yet still has a local feel to it. Almost all classes are taught by professors that are always willing to help. The campus is growing rapidly and I'm proud to call SIUE my alma mater!

I would tell my senior self that it'll be alright. My former self will already know this, because I wasn't afraid to leave home. I was aware of how lonely it could get, but I left determined to make the time at college awesome. So I guess I don't really need to give myself any advice...well, besides preparing for the smell of burnt popcorn and Ramen every night in the dorms. But you can't really prepare yourself for that one.
The kind of person that isn't willing to spend time diligently focusing on compelling subjects.
It is close enough to home for me to visit on the weekends. I am very close to my family and have a boyfriend whom I have been dating for a year and a half so it is very important for me to get to be at home often.
Encouragement from advisors., because some advisors dont seem to care about the actual success of the students, but more care about money.
Beautiful campus, great apartments, cool classes
My classmates come to class prepared and organized with binders, notebooks, and pens.
The people in the town of Edwardsville do not like the college students very much. Wish that there was a better party scene/more of a college town, able to walk home from parties/ bars. No school spirit here.
A peaceful learning environment.
Has a great campus environment aided by the very attractive campus layout, friendly people, and entertaining classes. Campus is growing and is currently undergoing a transition to be a division 1 sports school. Over 260 student organizations are active on campus so there is always something available to do. Also, SIUE has the lowest tuition rate of any state university in Illinois.
Someone who wants a close knit kind of community.
The geese. Just... the geese. They leave their droppings everywhere, and they get really territorial around this time of year. I can't walk around on campus without fearing that a goose is going to come after me! Generally they're pretty docile, but there's a lot of them, and they're SUPER noisy...
Our nature scene. We are the largest campus in the United States. We have miles of land, but do not have that many students. We have an awesome campus.
I totally regret my college life experience. If you want anything near a normal (every person I know that went to another school) fun, diversifying college experience, you will not find it here.
There are no Greek organizations. There are groups that try to be, but the city of Edwardsville has an ordinance that is strictly enforced of more than four unrelated individuals to live under one roof. If you do research on the relationship of the City of Edwardsville and SIUE it is very ugly. The state moved quickly to build the school and took farm land from some of the citizens. Still to this day, there is almost a full mile of empty land between the school and town, a strong tension.
Small class size is a benefit. But, it comes at a HUGE cost, both in time and money. The school limits the number of students per class to such a small number that roughly 25% of students that register for a class get squeezed out. Why does that matter? Myself and each and every member of my 30 person group of friends through out college did NOT graduate in 4 years. By the way, many required classes are strategically scheduled only once per semester, so if you don't get in, it is a FULL year before many classes are offered again. I pushed this point with my department head, that person changed 3 times in the 5 years I attend SIUE, sounds like a roll over in staff huh? When pushed the department head said that it is so theoretically students would graduate in a perfect 4 year time frame, when I provided physical proof (list of classes and semester offered, clearly showing that at minimum 4 and half years is required), he stammered and had a sudden meeting to attend.
I can honestly say that I don't see a particular stereotype. We have frats and soroties as well as many talented athletes. There are so many different clubs and activities available that everyone is free to float about and be a part of things on campus, not one particular thing is considered the "best" or "biggest".
Intense, hard, challenging, a pain in the butt! lol Im taking really hard Chemistry and Biology courses but at the end of the semester(s) and I see I still maintained a great GPA i feel then it's all worth it. :)
