Student & Graduate Reviews

"I attend the University of Illinois for four years and obtained my undergraduate degree in civil engineering. I think that the way that the university and especially the Grainger College of Engineering stands out is the resources they are able to provide for their students- which put you on the best road to success. Through the college I was able to attend career fairs which landed my first internship- which led to a full time offer, I was able to get free tutoring which helped me significant perform better in school after a rough first year, and offer a world-class education to the expansive network with other universities for studying abroad all over the world. Additionally, as a Latina in a predominately Caucasian and male field, the 'Women in Engineering' and 'Morrill Engineering Program' always helped me build a community, find support, and find my place."

"Looking back at my experiences at Urbana Champaign, I can truly say that I enjoyed it pretty well and that it was a great experience for me. The people that I met there were pretty friendly, but I have noticed that a vast majority of the students in recent years have been either from the Chicago metropolitan area or international students so there will be noticeable cliques that tend to form if you're a shy person like I was and didn't really feel up to talking to people. But a way to negate this is just to join any club or activity on campus early on to make friends and socialize. I've had some really amazing professors and then there were some that were just okay, but you'll find that to be the case in every university. As long as you choose your courses wisely, the workload although challenging, will be manageable."
