    UIUC really has a huge Greek Life presence and being involved is a good way to meet people. Joining any sport or club is like being in a small fraternity too because they usually host events outside of their primary function.

    Living in this town for a fair amount of my life and having a sibling who attended has let me know a lot about this school and its opportunities. It's ranked one of the highest in the country, and it's campus is excellent if you're willing to go and explore around. There's always something new to do here.

    The school is definitely difficult but with the right amount of studying and dedication, it's easy to do well. Come in with test scores above average or better for academics. Also, have a wide variety of extracurriculars and that'll definitely increase your ability to be accepted and broaden opportunities in the school itself.

    UIUC provides a friendly environment for student of all backgrounds and offers various great programs for students to engage in outside of the classroom. The professors are always great and more than willing to answer any questions that students might have. No matter where your interests might lie you will always find a class oriented to it!

    I really love the school for the academics, however not as diverse as I would have wanted. Professors and T.A.s are caring and will help out if asked. Working and studying is extremely possible at UIUC.

    University of Illinois is a difficult adjustment if you are coming from a small town school, due to it's immense size and dense population. It is better to live on campus for convenience. I find the course work to be relatively challenging.
