Student at This School - Grad Year 2014

Overall Rating

I think the school is great. It is overall a very different type of campus. It is very diverse with students from all sorts of backgrounds and from all over Illinois, the united states and the world. Also not many campuses do you get the atmosphere of atypical campus but get the city life as well.
