Degree: Marketing
Graduation Year: 2015

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is an incredible institution for students looking to grow academically, socially and professionally. The experiences in the classroom, in the dorm and around campus helped me to not only learn relevant content to my professional goals but also helped me to grow as a person. I see success in my everyday work life attributed to the thing I learned at U of I.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2012

U of I is a ton of fun. Most people are really smart and know how to study hard. The bar scene is great too and I loved being in a sorority! There are so many 'perks' to this school!

UIUC is overall a very good school. I am happy that I chose it to get my degree. In general, the faculty is excellent, with many intelligent, personable professors doing good research and teaching good classes. There are a lot of opportunities for students to participate in research as well, if desired. A couple of potentially negative aspects are that there is a huge drinking/partying culture there, with a ton of fraternities and sororities, and house parties going on all the time, so if someone is not interested in that, it might not be the best option in terms of social environment. Also, some classes/programs are too large for their own good, resulting in a somewhat sub-par classroom environment and experience. It's hard to genuinely learn when you are in a lecture of 150 people and the grade for the semester consists of four multiple choice tests. But overall you get a good education and there are a lot of opportunities to get involved in any extracurricular activity you can think of.

Degree: Geology/Earth Science, General
Graduation Year: 2010

Higher Education is the key; more specifically a degree in Science, Technology, Engineering, or Math. A background in STEM is a solid footing to be competitive in the job market. Also, do not discount trade schools by any means. Mechanics, Welders, Carpenters, Electricians are the people who make this world around us happen and readily find jobs almost anywhere and at any time.

Degree: Human Development and Family Studies, General
Graduation Year: 2011

I transferred to the UofI for my last two years of undergraduate studies. I really enjoyed my experience both curricular and extracurricular. The campus has great support for transfer students, so i would highly recommend UofI as a transfer student. The campus is small enough that it is easy to navigate by foot, bike or public transportation. The school carries great pride in its sporting events and there is never a dull season, although football and basketball take the cake! The student-teacher ratio for upperclassmen is excellent, so although it is a big school, you do not feel overwhelmed when you are in class, plus Teacher Aids are always around.

Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2013

Academically, it's a very good school for engineering. I've had professors who are the best in the world in their field and I took classes that were more in-depth as an undergrad than graduate classes at other universities. The location honestly isn't that great (nothing but corn for miles outside of the city. And soy beans. Corn and soy beans) and a lot of the culture is focused on the bar and party scene, which isn't exactly my cup of tea. Still, I was always able to find something to do in the little free time that I had.
