Student at This School - Grad Year 2014

Academics Rating

I have been taking classes from the School of Kinesiology. They have fantastic teachers and the program makes me happy I choose recreation management as my major. The classes hold around 30. My workload is very manageable and I have only had a few frustratingly hard/long assignments. No class has been to much for me to handle. I am a B average student.


Student at This School - Grad Year 2016

Academics Rating

The classes at Illinois State are perfect. The school excels in several different major programs, especially the accounting program I am currently in. The workload for classes is decent but is not too much where it is easy to get super stressed out over. All the professors are pleasant and are there to help their students succeed. The only thing is that when taking the GenEd courses the class size is rather large, and you have to go and personally ask a professor for help if you need it.
