Illinois College Reviews
Review Illinois College
IC is exactly what it claims to be - a small niche liberal arts campus with Top-notch professors, and a flexibility that bigger institutions can lack. Its strengths are also its weaknesses. Size, dollars, and a niche community can make or break your experience - how you emerge from IC depends on who you are and how you fit. Make the most of it!
Illinois College is a small division 3 level sports school. However no one truly cares about what level we are at. Everyone loves sports and attends sporting events. Most students at Illinois College participate in a sport. We are small but mighty you could say. Our fans have a ferocity you could see at an NFL game. Sports of all kinds bring us together as a college. Not only varsity level sports but also intramural sports. Everyone wants to have fun and a good time, people take intramural sports very serious but also in a playful manner. With our excellent athletic facilities we are able to be the best we can be at any sport. I feel sports make us an extremely tight knit community and why I feel Illinois College is the best school in the nation.
Although Illinois College is a small liberal-arts college, the environment is so welcoming that it makes you feel like you are a part of a family. Because of the size you get extra attention from your professors and they are always willing to help. Sure it may not be the biggest of schools but it provides you outstanding opportunities through its academics, clubs, and internships. I can safely say that because of my experiences at Illinois College, I know that I will be a strong candidate entering the workplace after I graduate.
