Illinois College Reviews
I love how tight-knit of a community IC provides. I love how small of a school it was; I was able to get to know a lot of peers as well as know my professors. As a female, I always felt safe walking around campus. Most of the student body is involved in something on campus outside of classes, and over half are student-athletes. We have up-to-date athletic facilities, historical buildings, and a great community surrounding us. Overall, I loved my time at IC. Something I would change about the school is the residential aspect, the school really needs updated residential halls and more dining areas.
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!
