What is your overall opinion of this school?

I visited the school a couple months ago and it was a beautiful sight to take in. When visiting the campus I thought it was very pleasant and the environment was very welcoming from all the individuals present that day. The tour guides were very helpful and knowledgeable people that provided helpful information upon many different subjects that involved the school. Overall, visiting this college has given me a glimpse of my future and for that, I am very grateful.

Loved it! Great, well-rounded school and experience. There's solid academics, great extracurricular experiences, amazing restaurants, and a robust social scene that includes greek and non-greek activities. It's really a perfect mix and is hard to beat.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign is a decent school. Academics are challenging, however most of the teachers try to make themselves available to students whenever possible. There is a decent combination lecture style classes and smaller classes with around twenty students in them giving my college both a big school and small school feel. The only problem I have is how often my professors bring up politics in classes which have nothing to do with the topics we are learning in class. I believe the school could improve with fewer political messages in class and more intellectual conversations and debates rather than bias lectures. The students all across campus create a welcoming culture which makes U of I the school it is. Prospective students should consider coming here because we have access to a diverse set of majors from an amazing engineering department, to a wonderful fine and applied arts department. There is so much for students to learn here, and even with the schools faults, there is enough to make up for it in other areas. I am lucky to be a student here at the University of Illinois.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Illinois is a great place to go if you are serious about academics. The engineering program is one of a kind and truly gives students something to learn about each day. The amount of student organizations on campus is also extensive so the opportunities to get involved are always there.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign so far has been great. More specifically, I have been extremely impressed by the professors and my peers. The professors are genuinely passionate about teaching and always open to constructive criticism to help improve their classroom methods. My classmates were also immediately friendly and eager to network since the very first day, which made the transition into a new university much easier.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is the perfect place for anyone looking for a huge college campus feel without sacrificing academics. There are several programs within the University rated within the top 20 in the country and all the faculty do their hardest to make sure you get a good college experience. Not only are the academics amazing, but there is a wide variety of Registered Student Organizations that all students can take advantage of. Whether you are a business major or an art major, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is the perfect place to study.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This probably applies to all colleges, but your experience is what you make it, no more, no less. Fortunately, I made the best of my time at UIUC. The people are lively and quirky, so there's never a dull moment on campus. The community is so diverse, yet so tight knit. Everyone knows "Unicycle Guy" and the one man who always wears shorts during a blizzard. Among 40,000 undergraduates, you wouldn't think little things like these would be so universal, but they are. Somehow amongst all of those people, everyone manages to share one collective experience. It's almost magical, and it's by far my favorite college experience, if you could call it that. Since Champaign-Urbana is built around the university, students are given everything they could ever want during their time on campus. Every restaurant delivers, and the delivery fees are always low. The restaurants that line Green Street are unique to Champaign, and the service is always great. During my last year in Champaign, I actually got a lot of food for free because many of the businesses are locally owned and I made friends with the store owners. I actually didn't realize just how spoiled we all were on campus until I left. I'm still not used to NOT having things handed to me on a silver platter. There's always something to do at UIUC. They have the largest Greek life in the nation, so you can rush almost any sorority or fraternity you want (or just attend their parties every weekend). The sports scene is massive. I never thought I'd see 21 year olds having to carry their parents home after hitting the bars on game day, but this is Illinois where everyone knows exactly who "Juggling Quad Guy" is, so anything is possible. As much as I loved hearing the football announcer's voice resonate through campus, I have to give it up for the smaller sports on campus. Gymnastics, golf, soccer, track and field, wrestling, volleyball, etc. are what brought home championships for UIUC, but they never got any recognition. They're super fun to watch, and they're FREE. All in all, the University of Illinois is a fantastic place to become an adult. I think people tend to forget that going to college is about more than getting an education. It's about joining a community of like minded people, and it's about being young while you're young. There's no better place to go out and be social than the world that UIUC has built for its students. It's specially curated for these tens of thousands of adults ages 18-30 to have a great time safely. That's not something you see everywhere. I'm truly blessed to have been able to be a part of that. So, if you're considering an education at UIUC, I say go for it. Become part of the magic. You won't regret it.

It's a beautiful campus with plenty of diversity and people of all races/religious beliefs/cultures. The campus is top-notch as far as academics goes and the professors are some of the best in the world. There are plenty of opportunities to receive help no matter the time or day!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I personally love my college, I've met so many new people and love how nice people can be there. There's always stuff going on at the quads and it's honestly non-stop action. On top of that, the academics are good and the people who go there know how to have a good time.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think my school is great, but it is not the city life I imagined only because I chose to go to a great school over thinking about city life locations. We are located in the middle of fields of corn so going a couple miles out in bus or car is a struggle on weekends to do grocery shopping.
