A beautiful campus that made me feel like I was at home. I stepped on to the campus and instantly knew this is where I want to go to college. The staff was wonderful, the athletic department blew me away, and overall it was an amazing first impression. I have been accepted and plan on attending Illinois college in the fall. I cannot wait to start my college experience there!

The small community atmosphere makes it super easy to connect with people and make friends. On top of that the professor are extremely personable and intelligent, making learning relatively easy and fun!
This school is not well known on the map. Most students come from small towns in Illinois, not much of an out of state or international student population. School cares a lot about it's history which is nice.

Pros: Small class sizes, nice and safe campus to live on, professors are good but some could be better.

Cons: Needs Bigger student population (at least 2,000), better food options on campus, updated dorms and housing, more options for majors, more extracurricular activities/events (not much to do besides party or go to athletic events, which not many do), more diverse student population.
