    I think that this university is a great place to have experiences that test your independence and resourcefulness. The people you meet here are great and filled with big hearts; you'll rarely be bored because you'll have a vibrant social life. The campus cafeteria could use a little variety, but for the most part, services and provided and the campus facilities are satisfactory.

    The campus is breath-taking. The psychology faculty are experts in their field. Off-campus housing is very affordable.

    Southern Illinois University is no longer the heavy drinking/partying college of the 1970's and has grown into a prospective university growing each and every year. Currently there are multiple ideals changing on the campus involving inclusivity, financial aid and student leadership. Organizations are adopting these ideals quickly to become available to all students with different cultural, sexual and other types of backgrounds

    The atmosphere of the school is very good. Certain teachers do their job well and take interest int heir students fully. However, the Radio/Television classes aren't up to par with the rest of the Mass Communications department.

    Southern Illinois University at Carbondale is a beautiful campus but is know as a party school. If you don't put yourself in that situation, the school is a great place to study and learn. This school also has a lot of resources available to you and that was one reason I decided to attend here.
