Most Helpful Review for University of Illinois at Chicago

The teachers are great. All professors are required to have a few office hours open for students to ask for help. If you don't have to see you professor, you can always ask your T.A. They have to have office hours too. I find the T.A. helpful because they are students too and usually give you ideas on how to student certain materials. Also, UIC has a lot of private learning resources and sessions on how to study better.

    The campus is convenient and environmentally friendly. The engineering branch is not shabby at all. Nothing to be ashamed about attending this college.

    UIC is a good school if your looking for research opportunities, a degree in any part of the health and medical field, or being able to have a life outside of school since it is downtown Chicago. Also there are plenty of options for part-time student employment. Be advised this is NOT A PARTY SCHOOL, so if that's the kind of atmosphere your looking for your in the wrong place.

    You won't get a socially involved experience like UIUC, but if you join a society it can be close to it. The classes are hard, but with a large school like UIC, study groups are very handy. Internships are easier here than UIUC because it is closer to the city.

    It is a great university for social work students because of the diversity encountered not only on campus, but in field placement. The professors are very diverse in their experience with social work and their backgrounds. It is great for people interested in mental health.

    University of Illinois at Chicago is very different from other schools because it is a school located in the city, which I love. The faculties and staffs are very friendly, so it is hard to not making any friends. The schools provides all kinds of sources to help the students succeed.
