    SIU-C is an interesting school, it is quiet mos of the time, easy to navigate; however, it is a small town so if your from a big city like i am you may get a little bored. Although, getting bored helps you get your work done and time to do other activities and it gives you more of a reason to join an RSO program their are hundreds of them and you can even start your own. Many of the people you will meet here are from mostly Chicago and Saint Louis.

    The best college you will ever plan or go to ever. The environment is beautiful and yet still so much to do, really has a great culture.

    I love all the information on this school. I am stuck between 2 colleges although this one is growing on me. This seems like a great school to go to with the perfect price for room and board.

    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.
