    When enrolling into UIC you are given locked in Tuition meaning that the following year if UIC decided to up the price your tuition would stay the same throughout your years at UIC. I also love the U-Pass it is the best investment at UIC. I travel a lot around the city and I tend to take a lot of public transportation and the U-Pass allows me to take as many rides as I want within the day, week, or month.

    Inner Circle (which has Subway, Sbarro, Burrito Bravo....) is a big deal. However, I've never been. Whatever is there never is open for late nights. There is a Dunkin Donuts which is very helpful.
