What is your overall opinion of this school?

As I am getting my masters online through UIS, I want to provide perspective into the online degree program. The classes I have taken in CS and Data Analytics departments have been extremely hit or miss. Some classes are engaging and attempt to use new technologies (R, Python, Git) while others are archaic and require students to write code in a Word document. There is little to no guidance from my academic advisor, and I have had professors who are completely non-responsive to emails (and given this is an online degree, it's imperative that professors respond to email!). It's extremely disheartening to pay for classes and see that some professors simply do the bare minimum. The analytics capstone course is also a huge letdown, as it essentially just encourages students to find an old Kaggle competition and do very basic analysis. All in all, if you're just looking to get a degree then UIS will certainly give you one, but if you're looking to learn and spend your money wisely I would look elsewhere.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

While attending the University of Illinois at Springfield, I have gone outside my shell in all the right ways. The first week of school we volunteer and get a feel for the Springfield area. This also helped me branch out and meet new people I will be friends with for the rest of my life. I feel right at home!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This is a good fit for people who want to go to a small school or play a sport. Everyone knows each other so it is a very friendly and safe campus. There definitely could be more activities to do so you have to make the effort to get involved and meet new people. If you put yourself out there and have a good group of friends then you will have a great time here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a very home-like school with a lot of opportunities to succeed, grow, and learn. There's plenty of options to do and many ways to venture out into your field of study. With many internships available, no one is scared to go out and see what they are interested in. 10/10 school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe that the campus is very student friendly and beneficial to academic growth. The extracurricular activities, athletic, music, and activities planned for the campus are fun, yet there could be more. Another thing that I think should be taken into consideration a bit more often is students with disabilities both on campus and for the online classes. Online courses should have more assistance available for students enrolled, yet not living on campus. Perhaps more tutors, people to assist with classes, and more. Some may say that perhaps that is why an online course just may not be an option for those with disabilities; however, at times, the courses offered are only available online. UIS is overall a good university, but there is always room for improvement.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The size of the school is relatively small which can be both good and bad. You get to know and build strong relationships with people and you see familiar faces everywhere. However, the location of the school makes it a bit hard to get around but as long as you're openminded and open to different activities there's always something to do.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think that this school will be great for athletics and learning. I would be proud to get my degree from this school. Overall it was the best school I have viewed especially for the price. The on campus living is great and the people around are even better. This college is honestly the best choice out there in my opinion.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The academics are very important here. Housing is very strict on partying as there are no sorority/fraternity houses (greek life new to campus). The food is better than some places in terms of quality, but not many healthy/vegetarian/vegan options.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great university at a reasonable price. Professors are almost always nice and helpful and students get along for the most part. Campus life can be dry, but when we are allowed to party (if the campus police let us) then it is fun and safe as well. It gives students the opportunity to mingle and meet new people

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This school has either made me and break me. First things first, if you are someone applying to a school of U of I, apply to all three campuses. Now to the good stuff, U of I all around is a great school. They care about their students' success and make sure that they do their part in order for that to happen. Everyone is friendly. You can have a quite interesting intellectual conversation with anyone. The only thing that I wish could improve is housing. I lived in Founders Hall (U of I at Springfield). It can get loud from time to time, but I hope they can improve on students' requests about things when something is disturbing them. However, I understand they can only control so much activity in the building, I guess. Besides, I enjoyed my time on campus. There's always something to do and it's up to whoever it is to make their college experience great.
