    The rating I would give this university overall would be a 7/10. While UIUC is great at academics and catering to the majority of the students it does not aid the minority students as much as one would have hoped. Growing up as a Black and Puerto Rican female, I will say that I have not seen as many inclusive events where I have felt catered to.

    The University Of Illinois is a spectacular school with endless possibilities. When on campus you can see just how great the College life is, it appeals to what the majority of people expect out of College life. And also the School is premier in terms of academic support, they care about your success and representation of the U Of I.

    I've been to visit the campus twice and I love it. All the people there are really nice and will help show you around campus and tell you where things are. It is a really great college.

    I am from Illinois, so UIUC makes sense for me both cost-wise and academic-wise. It can cen quite chilly in the winter, so some form of transportation is advised getting to and from classes and dorms.

    My first choice college, and I'm glad it was. It has opened my eyes up a lot since I've been here. It's also one of the top 10 public universities in the nation.

    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

    The University of Illinois is one of the most incredible campuses I have ever walked on. It's absolutely beautiful and have immense diversity. I was accepted and plan to attend this fall, honestly there was no other school that compared to UIUC and the recognition they receive is topping on the already perfect school
