What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion is that it is a wonderful university. You could never get bored over there with all the activities going on in the city. It is a bit expensive, but it is a beautiful life experience. I get to experience city life while also getting my education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe that the University of Illinois has a great program for students who wants to focus on the pre-med track, but they lack resources for students like me, on the pre-law track. The pre-law track students do not have an alliance, do not have an advisor, do not have a group where they can meet each other and not because they are not a lot, but because the school doesn't focus on them.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Diversity, research, experiences, and culture. UIC offers a different take on college. The location makes the university a great place for commuters, and offers a wide range of housing options for those on-campus students. Accessibility to a great education is here! Being one of the leading research universities in the city, you will find an abundance of professors and graduate assistants that are flourishing in their fields. There are a variety of opportunities to get involved. Research assistant positions, greek life, intramural sports, clubs and lots of fun and inviting experiences. UIC is incredibly diverse and welcoming to all. The accepting atmosphere from students and staff makes it easy for you to find it a home away from home. Being centrally located and having access, through tuition, to CTA you can travel anywhere. Adventures await at the university. Educators are pathing the way in their perspective fields and are very willing to help students in need. The community environment that is created by the university is an attractive aspect to the school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University of Illinois at Chicago is a nice school concerning that it focuses on academics more than anything. Their main idea is to involve students in their activites and encourage them to participate in them. UIC has lots of opportunites to do so and students should take advantage of it. Sports ans Greek life are big here and joining them is important to some. Overall, the college wants students to feel safe and wants them to have the best education they could get.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Just to clarify my response for the first question, I put down "sometimes, not often" because the university's population is mainly people who commute. Because of this, it makes it a bit harder to form friendships since everyone just focuses on going to their lecture or lab and then go right back home. On another note, the school does a good job in focusing on academics but don't do a very good job at helping students when they are having trouble with the material. I'm not sure if it has been my luck, but overall I haven't really found it easy to reach out to my professors or Was during their office hours.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Illinois at Chicago is a great school that prioritizes education, promotes resources and encourages extracurricular involvement. I am only a freshman student, currently, but I enjoy getting my education here. There is never a shortage of opportunities to get involved and further my education. Thus, I feel as though UIC is preparing me to succeed in the post-college world.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school is in the city so there is always something to do if you are bored. It's mostly a commuter school so it's crazy during the week but boring on the weekends. The campus is nice and the students are pretty cool. The dining hall is okay but a lot of the food just looks gross. They have good cereal though at all times of the day and thats a major plus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UIC is a research-intensive university of dedicated students who turned down Ivy-Leagues for what UIC offers. While UIC provides students with numerous opportunities to further their careers, it is up to the students to take advantage of them.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UIC is AWESOME!!! I am a transfer student in my sophomore year and my major is Rehab Sciences with a focus on attending their school of Occupational Therapy to earn a MOT after obtaining my BS in Rehab Sciences. My professors have been excellent, so far. I have nothing but good things to say as that is what I have experiences during my first semester as a UIC student. The culture is very diverse and I believe that is an excellent point. Everyone I had the opportunity to speak with learn from or collaborate with have been extra cool!!! After all, UIC is Chicago's top research university and the curriculum is very user friendly!!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I found this University awesome including the Library, on campus life, classrooms facilities, cafeteria hygienic and delicious food. One of the best thing is writing center, tutors who are always there to help your out. Professors are great, approachable and helping , especially I found myself lucky of being their student. Also there are different activities that pushes one to socialize and release their stress.
