“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.

“I love this school”
April 2017CURRENT STUDENT
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

“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
