SIUe is an average sized University on a large beautiful campus located in the metropolitan St. Louis area. It is currently one of the quickest growing Universities in the United States. If you want to get top of the line academic's, and leave with a great social college experience this is the school for you.
Jesse from Galva, IL
siue is a place where you can get a great state school experience and education at an affordable cost. the campus is very scenic and detached from the city, which gives everything a more intimate feeling. there's always something to do on campus, in edwardsville, or half an hour away in st louis.
