Alumnus - Grad Year 2000

College Life Rating

When you combine a rigorous academic program with a bunch of smart, studious people, building a social life can be a real challenge. There were always plenty of clubs and organizations to join, but sometimes the academic schedule made it difficult to commit to them. The key for me was finding two clubs whose missions I cared about and whose members I really liked, so I was motivated to carve out the necessary time to participate.

Alumnus - Grad Year 2007

College Life Rating

This program has a lot of enrollment's, but surprisingly it does not feel that way. The campus is very safe, and freezing in the winter time. Unfortunately I had to commute from suburbs away from Chicago, I highly recommend living close to the University.
