Illinois College Reviews
There is no diversity and the party scene should be given a D-, because it’s almost non-existent. The funds are used for dumb things like stadiums for teams that rarely win, and things like “E-Sports”. Population is mostly white and annoying, coming from small towns and being ignorant and uncultured. Some professors are nice and good at their jobs, and those are the ones they want to fire because they actually care about the students. Residential Life sucks and is way too strict and hard on students. They’re even confiscating wine glasses and entering rooms without permission. All in all, it’s not a bad a school. Classes are good, I’ve actually learned a thing or two, but everything else lowkey sucks.
I absolutely loved the ability to connect to faculty and become part of their research! It completely changed my life and prepared me for a career (the only reason I put four stars is because politics on campus can get annoying at times, but I also recognize that such is everywhere).
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!
