"A great college as long as you know how to use it. Be thoughtful in your choice of major and classes. Be sure to balance at this university as some classes can really be tough. Use Rate My Professors website to find what professors are best for your learning style as there are quite a few. Use the rec - center as much as you can as it is very nice and even a rock wall climb or a work out or even a track jog can really help lower stress. Make sure that you have a good relationship with your advisor to help get you through classes and get to your degree. If you are having difficulty, they will be able to alert you to classes that would be more difficult or what you should try out instead."

"A great school that you need to grab hold of your education. Make your path and talk with advisors and look into the less taken classes or options. They will usually end up being better for you."

"Overall UIC was a good school that offered a nice experience, especially living in the city. You have to be aware and ready that 80% of the campus commutes and that it is just a really big school. There is a lot to do, you just have to find out and know about events. It's an affordable price, with solid staff and professors. And the location is probably the BEST quality. Use your U-Pass and travel all around the city!"

Degree: Public Health

"An outstanding degree program! The professors all had real world experience in the subject material being taught which is unheard of in a "brick and mortar" residential school. In most "brick and mortar" universities, you'll find where the teachers have gotten their Bachelor Degrees, Master Degrees, and / or PhDs... but have no real world experience. Real world experience and the ability to convey lessons learned is what sets UIC apart from other brick and mortars... Students actually learn and are not just given arbitrary tests created by some grad assistant who has no clue how the subject material will affect the other students. Good job UIC! I now have a degree that means something not only to me but to my employer as well."

"UIC provides an outstanding educational environment. Classes are all well sized, and most of the professors are fun and easy to work with. The tuition prices are reasonable, and financial aid assistance is offered if needed. Commute to UIC is very easy via public transportation or by car, with parking lots available for additional fee."
