Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2014

Overall Rating

I liked this school as soon as I saw it. It was Spring Break and everyone was on the quad. Whether seeing a group protesting or another person on a zip line I knew this was the school for me. I started participating right away when I got to school Things I wanted to do all my life I found @ U of I in registered student organizations


Alumnus - Grad Year 2007

Overall Rating

As a proud alumnus of the engineering school, I can't speak more highly of Illinois. The academics are rigorous, the student life is incredibly fun, and the school spirit is infectious (particularly during successful sports seasons).
