University of Illinois at Springfield Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (5)
University of Illinois at Springfield is a very diverse college. There aren't many people here so the teacher to student ratio is very good. The class sizes are very small compared to other colleges and the teachers really care about the success of the students. It is a great college to have a little fun and also get all of your studies done. And if you need any help with your studies the student can easily talk to there teacher or go to the library and go into the learning center for help.
I WAS LOOKING FOR A SMALLER SCHOOL AND UIS FIT THAT PERFECTLY. GOOD INSTRUCTORS, WISH A FEW MORE OF THE MATH PROFESSORS SPOKE CLEARER ENGLISH. BIGGEST DRAWBACK WAS THE AMOUNT OF UPPER LEVEL MATH CLASSES THAT WERE ONLY AVAILABLE ONLINE AND HAD NO CLASSROOM OPTION.
U.I.S. has a great reputation throughout the state. The Human Service program is outstanding, I have learned tremendously and my instructors are on top of assistance, knowledgeable and fair. I went to a private online college prior and enjoyed it yet was accelerated and not well known throughout the community. I also have a easier time getting employment based on U.I.S. recognition.
The continued growth of the campus has opened up a very wide range of opportunities. Loved the campus housing options. I was not in favor of the online only class offerings of the upper level math courses.
The college is good if you are in that region. If you are not, they can't really do much for you since they are a regional university. Unless you are able to attend UIUC or other top rated programs, I would stick to programs close by. Some courses were good, were challenging, and taught you a lot where others didn't. I guess you could get that anywhere.
