What Students Are Saying

3.99 Average Rating
Great friendly campus in the middle of cornfield, USA. Classes are theoretical and challenging in the engineering dept. However, it's easy to take a variety of other classes (art, history, dance, etc), regardless of your major.

I transferred to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign from a community college in Chicago. Let me tell you, it was definitely a tough transition academically because UIUC demands the best of it's students and does not accept anything less. I have learned that I can expand my knowledge, time, and research and that you are the only one that can limit yourself.
