Student at This School - Grad Year 2013

Overall Rating

Every individual will have their own experience. I have met a lot of people from different countries and this is probably my favorite thing about the university. I think the natural setting is what I'm really in love with. There are a lot of outdoor activities at SIUC.

Student at This School - Grad Year 2015

Overall Rating

Overall I'm very pleased with this school. My favorite part is the campus itself. It's very beautiful and everything is close together. You can walk from one side to the other in 15 minutes. The dorms are a lot nicer and much larger than those at other schools. Tips for any incoming students: go to class!
