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.

    Tidewater Community College is a wonderful school to start off your education. The learning enviroment, as well as the teachers and other staff are highly qualified for their jobs and do everything they can to help you succeed. It is very clear, as a student, that this school provides its students with everything they need to get a good job or continue their education in the future.

    uic is a great choice for students who are in the chicago area. there are many opportunities for all majors be it business, medicine, or engineering. the growth uic has shown in the last few years is promising, and sooner or later will be a flagship school in illinois.

    This university is pretty big and outstanding. I love their theatre in which it's surrounded by paintings on the walls. The students there were so nice and intelligent, and I would definitely go there!

    UIC has a very serious atmosphere, so if you are looking for a party school, look somewhere else! This school will push you to be the best you can be and get the highest grades possible.The ambitious students and the supportive teachers will motivate you throughout your entire college career.

    Based on the other reviews, people say that the food is bad, but the rigor of the school is challenging. If I do go to this school, I may want to eat off campus. Just a pattern I've been noticing.

    Disregarding the mediocre WiFi service, UIC is a welcoming school with an abundance of culture and diversity. There are a multitude of learning resources and events that help expose you to the enriching environment on campus. The professors and staff are more than willing to assist you with anything and make your stay at UIC a great one.

    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.
