    You get to live right next to Chicago, one of the most amazing cities in the world. Not having high standing sport teams does not mean that that sense of love for atheltics can be lost when you get top notch professional teams down the street.

    This campus is very close to many restaurants and stores including Greek Town and the South Loop, which has the Sears Tower and many more sights. Although attractions and such are close to the campus's perimeter, I feel many students don't wander off as much as we should into the close city to explore industrialism at its finest.

    You definitely get your money's worth for what you spend to attend UIC. Most of the professors are very good, and the cost to attend this university is less than most. If you have to buy a meal plan, I would recommend not buying anything beyond a 5-day meal plan so that you can venture out and explore different restaurants in Chicago.

    Uic had an amazing recreational center and sometimes they offer free back massages! They also have a pool, a hot tub, rock climbing wall, and offer classes such as yoga or Zumba or instructional courses.
