    SIUC is a great school if you are looking for a school that has countless opportunities. I have only been here for a semester and I have gotten email after email from my respective college (Education and Human Services) about different opportunities that would interest me based on my interest of study. This school always has events going on so it is really easy to find your place here on campus.

    It's a very outdoorsy school and if you're into that thats great. It is self proclaimed one of the best research schools in the us. But, be warned, it's a party school so if you're not into that, don't bother or you wont' have any fun here.

    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.

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
