    a big school with many opportunities, university of illinois at urbana-champaign does have something for every type of person. you can expect to find a diverse student body and an equally diverse faculty. the large campus gets smaller once you learn to navigate around and create relationships with different people.

    the people on campus - students, professors, counselors - are all extremely welcoming, friendly and helpful, so do not feel intimidated. despite being located in central illinois, there are plenty of things to keep you busy in campus-town and the surrounding areas - whether it be shopping at marketplace mall, getting food on green street, or exploring the nature of urbana. joining rsos and/or greek life helps make such a large campus feel much smaller, and definitely like a second home.

    Illinois is amazing; with so much to do around it, I was amazed. Though the class size may be larger than the average college/university, hard work is rewarded. Truly a great college for a great career ahead

    U of I was an integral part of my growth into adulthood. I was pushed to think critically not only through my academic coursework, but also through clubs, community organizations, staff, and fellow students that completely transformed my worldview, passions, and identity.

    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.
