University of Illinois at Chicago Reviews
UIC's applird psychology program was a surprising detailed and expansive program that got me feeling well prepared for my future job and well prepared for Grad school. They have some dedicated staff that are willing to go the extra mile to make sure you understand a concept. Their internship program in the senior year was also good practice and experience to make sure I feel more ready once I was put of school.
I thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the University of Illinois at Chicago. I do not think there was one part that I did not like, even though I commuted very long hours. All of the teachers I had were helpful, considerate, and open-minded. There were a lot of very interesting classes to take, both for my major and as electives. The campus is open and has many resources available. I would highly recommend this college to anyone!
University of Illinois at Chicago is very diverse student body in terms of race/ethnicity, language, culture, religion, socio-economic status. I learned a great deal by being around people who I once thought was different from me. Almost every course has additional outside resources that helps with students understanding of materials. There's math tutoring, writing center, study group sessions held by the teacher assistants of some courses, and as expected you can visit the professor's office hours. There are many locations on campus that has computer labs. They are scattered in the residential buildings, science buildings, writing hall, library. Pretty much everywhere. Food selection is great, they have a lot of chain restaurants: Wendys, Sabbaros, Dunkin Doughnuts, Subway,etc. They also have two convenience stores. Also, they also have a cafeteria where they serve there own food. Although it is a big campus everything is in walking distance. The blue line and three or four public cta buses drop you off right on campus. The school also has a shuttle bus and you just have to present your student ID card in order to ride it. I enjoyed all of my English professors because they were very knowledgeable of the course they were teaching. If you're having troubles with writing a paper I will highly suggest that you visit the Writing Center. They tutors at the Writing Center are students that received a grade of "A" or "B" in their English courses. The tutors are also trained by taking a course that centers around helping the writing of others. Once a student graduate they can visit the career service office up until one year after graduating. At the office they can help you with your concerns about the job field, resumes, job questions. They can also conduct a mock interview.
I attended the University of Illinois at Chicago as a Master's student in the Ecology and Evolution program. I feel that the course selection for graduate students in this program was scarce. While the required courses for new graduate students in the program were useful in that they taught basic skills needed to be successful in graduate school (giving a poster presentation, writing a review paper, etc.), there were hardly any options for other relevant courses to take. I had taken an Evolution course meant for college seniors and a Statistics course for graduate students in Ecology and Evolution. There weren't any courses to satisfy my desire to learn about other aspects of the field that I'm not familiar with, or courses to help me develop skills relevant to my own research. The program is also lacking financial support for graduate students in the summer semester.
Music program was and still is developing. Some major classes weren't required, or rather unnecessary to take. They also changed the curriculum for juniors and seniors when those changes should have only applied to freshmen and sophomores. So they were money hungry. Education concentration eventually.
The University of Illinois at Chicago is a great University is a terrific institution. I was fortunate to have attended a school that has great advisors and professors. The students are welcoming and approachable. Along with the diversity of the student body the curriculum for my major was challenging and great!
The psychology program at UIC was was quite challenging at times but many of the teachers were very clear and straightforward on what they wanted. They were welcoming and willing to help inside and outside the classroom. I enjoyed the program because it kept my interest my entire four years at UIC.
I received a Bachelor's Degree in Biochemistry, focusing on pre-pharmacy program. The school provided sufficient information about my career path. Most professors were also passionate about their teachings and cared for their students' education. Also, being located in the city and near a medical district, there are so many opportunities to get hands on experience at the field you are interested in.
Great education, diversity, amazing professors and overall great university experience is few of the great quality University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) has. Im glad I chose to go to UIC and I can recommend it to anyone who wants a better education for their bucks most especially if youre a business major, this university has a lot of opportunities for you to grow on your academic goals as well as prepare you for your future career.
I really enjoyed my college experience at UIC. I came to UIC already with a major in mind. Along the way, I picked up psychology and managerial skills as minors. I enjoyed my classes in sociology the most. I love that not only are professors teaching, but the graduate students as well. However, it was easy for many students to mistake grad students for professors and so many undergrads couldn't name one professor. I also thought there should be more programs that work towards future career paths for undergraduate students, such as internships and workshops. I am a close alumni to many of the staff and professors in the sociology department, where I learned that they are now implementing many programs about future career paths.
