    It might be the best party school in U.S, but that's for a reason - we have enough reasons to celebrate. With various research, job and leadership opportunities for undergraduates, excellent academics that prepare you for your career and a benign inclusive environment that promotes expressing oneself, this school has given back more to the students than it has received. And that is evident from the fact that it is run entirely on donations from alumni.

    Horrible, overpriced experience. Terrible professors, the graduate teaching assistants are even worse for the price you pay.

    This is a very accredited university with a great history behind it. Hundreds if not thousands of graduates go on to do amazing things in the world, in fact, the Morrow Plots here on campus was the first experimental field that discovered soil quality affected crop output significantly. Also, Ron Swanson(Nick Offerman) from the hit TV show Parks and Rec graduated here with a degree in agriculture.

    A very, very large campus. It really does not FEEL that large though. Very diverse (a lot of international asian students).

    From my visit, I have perceived U of I to be a very respectable university. The campus is really peaceful to have such a great student count, and many of the students seem really enveloped in their studies. There are a lot of good majors; U of I has recently sparked my interest in nano-technology through a tour of that area, and initially, I thought there wasn't much, but when I kept exploring I found more surprises!
