Most Helpful Review for Illinois State University

I have learned so much already from ISU. I came to school having no idea what I wanted to do and no direction towards any specific career path. Illinois State helped me figure this out quickly my freshman year through its variety of General Education classes. It really opened my eyes to all of the options you have once you begin your education here.

    This school is so awesome because there's a humongous amount of help for you. There are people there to catch you when you fall and even if you don't need it, the support systems are extremely helpful. There is literally nothing you can't do here!

    beginning with visiting the campus, through applying for enrollment and acceptance, illinois state university (isu) has made me feel like part of the isu family. the level of personal attention that has been extended to me has been quite impressive. i definitely see isu being my home away from home.
