filip from lake zurich, il
The University of Illinois at Chicago is a very populated university, mainly consisting of commuters from Chicago and it's surrounding cities and suburbs. Resources here are plentiful and there is always something for everyone. All in all, college is what you make it, and this goes for UIC as well.
