College Life Rating

The athletics programs at Illinois State are fantastic to watch. Currently ISU has a new football stadium under construction. The basketball games are my absolute favorite to attend. Very exciting! The nightlife is great. Campus safety is iffy. ISU will send out text messages to all its students if there is a threat on campus. Often times they are at 3am.
