UIS is a great school to go to for a new college student. It has small class sizes, which allow for personal relationships to be developed with professors. It also has a many different clubs and activities to keep students engaged, while exploring other passions and hobbies.
University of Illinois is not a school I would recommend. I left during Christmas break because of a death in family. I was told by an African American professor to not come back ! I wanted to finish my education and a professor told me no. I was seeking help while on campus to get very little to no help. I am a first-gene so I tried to make an impact at home. I let others dictate my life for me. The worst decision in my life was going away and putting myself in so much debt because someone else didn’t believe in me, they had other plans for me.
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.
Love the friendly atmosphere. Every department has its thorns though. A lot of people can't navigate their careers or academics from here because it's a bit too broad but there's always someone concerned who tries to help you.

Both parents and students need to take time to consider all of their options including what type of job they're pursuing, before they start college. Some high schools offer vocational training, which can help when deciding on what to major in at school. Also, students, when picking the right college, choose one that fits you and consider the scholarships, grants and FAFSA EARLY! It may feel like a lot of work, but it helps make things a lot cheaper! Find out what is expected of you by most professors and consider what type of help (Tutors/study groups) is available at school. Both parents and students, consider the local schools in your area, especially the junior and community colleges and what's required of transfer students at the current school you may be interested in. Sometimes it's best to start with a 2- year college since it can provide an associates degree, something you can fall back on, just in case the University doesn't work out. Community college is a good investment because you can live at home, (since some colleges have everything in walking distance), you can keep your car and have home cooked meals daily!!!
My classmates were unique, ambitious, creative, liberal, and friendly.
The online learning capabilities are amazing at UIS. The professors also seem very engaged in the learning process, which helps students do the same. The location of UIS is great! The city of Springfield is big enough to have activities and employment opportunities unlike other schools I considered.
A Liberal minded one.
The University of Illinois at Springfield is small therefore the classroom size is perfect for allowing indepth personal learning with great contact with both the faculty and other academic professionals.
The best thing about UIS is the small class sizes. This way, teachers and students know each other on a first-name basis.
I wish I had realized ?The only possession you own that can never be taken from you is what you carry inside your brains.?
UIS is a small campus and its like to know everyone on the campus so where ever you go on campus you will not feel lonely. The staff and professors are very friendly and therefore I never hesitate to go to them if I need any help.
We have a huge library and you can find me most of the time in the library.
There is student housing in the campus itself which makes us feel living if the campus close to all the events that take place.
Is is very safe on campus.
What I would consider to be the worst thing about my school is the fact that it is such a challenge to travel there by public transportation. If an online student or distance learner has to commute to this school, they must do so via amtrak and at least two buses because there is no shuttle to transport them.
This liberal arts school has small classrooms with teachers who know you by name and are willing to spend the time to get you where you want to go. Get involved with organizations on campus, even those outside your major. Take a few ECCE classes that just sound interesting because they will be. I recommend attending as many as possible, it will really broaden your mind.
The whole campus is small enough so that everything is within walking distance. If you live on campus, you won't have to worry about taking a bus to get to your next class.
The University of Illinois at Springfiled is best known for its political science and pre-law programs. The university's location in the state's capital is extremely useful for gaining internships and hands on experience in the field of political science. Also, the school's location puts students in a place that allows them to view the workings of government close up and make sure that political science is the field that they wish to go into.
Yes the stereotypes are accurate.
All the professors do know our name. Class participation is very common and we don't hesitate to talk as the professors are very friendly. Students are very competitive. I am doing Masters in computer science and I met professors outside the class several times to get doubts clarified. And they do clarify on the spot without even postponing. Its like almost asking your friend.

Party are very common at UIS. We have a party on every birthday of our friends and this party general occurs at midnight.
Actually, UIS has only been UIS since 1995; not quite long enough for us to really have a stereotype. Before that it was Sangamon State University; the SSU student was stereotypically a hippy.
Several students at UIS share their favorite "secret spots" to sneak away to with your loved one on campus.
UIS students share the truth about weekends on campus. If you want something to do, make it yourself.
