University of Illinois at Chicago Top Questions

What's unique about your campus?


The best thing about the University of Illinois at Chicago is the opportunity to learn about and participate in a variety of community organizations, student groups, events, activities. The vast majority of opportunities truly allow you to expand your mind and be more open-minded to which degree or profession you may want to pursue. If you are unsure, there are many professors, teaching assistants, and other faculty available for you to meet with to help you narrow down your interests, goals, and define a plan to get you to where you want to be.


The college I attend was not in the choices listed. I go to Moody Bible Institute, and I do online courses. The best thing about this school is that it has the highest accreditation that exists, so this helps insure that my courses will transfer to my states college. The other great thing about this college is that they are in partnership with the service Gap year program I am in this year, and they give the students a discount to take courses through them. I am thankful that I am able to do this!


For the money that I'm paying, I'm revieving a good education. Also, I'm in a good spot for this particular field (Chicago/computer science). One of the problems with this survey is that I'm answering questions for the "college" that I'm in (school of engineering) and the University as a whole, and the answers vaty greatly depending on which one I'm thinking about. And I havn't been consistent. In any case, it's a fantastic college, and a so-so university.


Most classes made our course work applicable to real life. Whatever I was learning in school, I had to research and apply for validity and realiability in the real world.


I would have to say that the best thing about the school is it's diversity. UIC is known to be one of the most ethnically diverse schools in the country. Meeting people with different backrounds helps you for future encounters in real life. You become a more socially sensitive person in terms of religous and political views.


The academics.


The best thing about my school would have to be the diversity. Growing up in a pre-dominately white neighborhood, I wasn't exposed to much different culutures than my own. Going to UIC, I was able to experience different cultures and learn about other people.


I really like the library of my school. It is so organized, and students can study there without disturbance. There are different floors for different types of setting a student likes. There is one floor that is really quiet, and if a student wants to study in groups, there is a different floor for that. Also, there are computers on each and every floor. And, there are printers too, but not on every floor. Also, the campus is really pretty too.


The location allows for convience and diverse opportunites.


The culturally rich atmosphere and rock solid support system located in the heart of the best city in the world! There is never a dull moment and always something spetacular to learn about the city and about your school. Every student gets individualized attention and an instructor devoted to the well-being of their students. There is a very wide variety of choices of Major/Minor and electives.
