    A world class educational that will not set you behind 40 years paying back student loans. Not only a great undergraduate program, but also a phenomenal graduate program; both of which at a great price. Not only that but all expenses are explained in their purpose, and even some are optional which can save you more money than expected.

    It is really cheap because it is a public university. Unfortunately, there is not as much financial aid for graduate students. There are really competitive fellowships, research/graduate assistantships, and a few scholarships.

    You get to live right next to Chicago, one of the most amazing cities in the world. Not having high standing sport teams does not mean that that sense of love for atheltics can be lost when you get top notch professional teams down the street.

    This campus is very close to many restaurants and stores including Greek Town and the South Loop, which has the Sears Tower and many more sights. Although attractions and such are close to the campus's perimeter, I feel many students don't wander off as much as we should into the close city to explore industrialism at its finest.
