“U of I Review”
March 2018FORMER STUDENT
Uppers

Best combination of social life and education you will find in Midwest.

Downers

Career services office was not great at providing guidance and realistic expectations.

Comments

This is a perfect college choice assuming you pick the correct major.

Uppers

Outstanding Engineering and Education courses

Large and diverse student body

Downers

Too much reliance on greek organizations for social life

Athletic Department disappoints

Comments

The education you receive at this school will not go to waste. Although it is not a top ten school there is a lot to gain in terms of networking and almost any major has potential for a career after graduation.

Would You Recommend

Yes

“Great university”
November 2016CURRENT STUDENT
Uppers

You learn how to compete in such a large university. Many classes to choose.

Downers

Teaching quality varies. It depends on different professors. I feel that professors in Fall semesters are much better than ones in Spring semesters. Some profs don't teach in spring because of their researches.

Comments

If you are interested in accounting, U of I has one of the top five accounting programs.

Would You Recommend

Yes

“Lack of brand, lot of opportunities”
November 2015CURRENT STUDENT
Uppers

Lot of organizations on campus allowing you to get a taste of a lot of different things and shape your career

Downers

Some companies don't consider the school strong, despite good engineering and business schools.

Comments

Anything is possible at the school, but you need to be active and aware from your first year of school.

Would You Recommend

Yes

“Affordable, top-notch education in a quintessential college town”
August 2015FORMER STUDENT
Uppers

Tuition is extremely reasonable for in-state students at 15k/year. You would be hard pressed to get more for your money anywhere in the country.

Downers

Basketball and football teams have taken a dive in recent years, though other sports have enjoyed considerable success - gymnastics, golf, wrestling, volleyball.

Comments

Top notch education (especially business and engineering), combined with affordable tuition, low cost of living, and a great party atmosphere make U of I one of the best choices for any Illinois resident.

Would You Recommend

Yes
