Its an amazing university with unlimited opportunities in the great city of Chicago! So much to do, so many options for entertainment. Transportation is a breeze with two L train lines with direct access to the campus. New facilities, architectural buildings with updated and modern interiors. Very diverse student body, lots of groups, clubs and other ways to be involved in student life.

Illinois Institute of Technology offers a great selection of resources for students and the teachers all have an evident great passion for teaching! Illinois Institute of Technology also holds an phenomenal career fair that opens up many doors for students of all majors along with having many resources and events that get you well prepared to present yourself at the career fair. At Illinois Institute of Technology, there is also the ARC resource center that almost always has passionate tutors on hand to help you with just about any academic subject. The school hosts a great number of campus-wide events that help you bond with and meet new students as well as having very welcoming Greek Life. The only downside I can think of is that getting an on-campus job is exceedingly difficult.
The administration at Illinois tech is appallingly out of touch with the student body and more concerned about keeping the coffers filled and showing off for potential new students. They do not take student concerns very seriously, and rarely make changes that are recommended to them through multiple channels. Some of the public safety force can be very disrespectful and unfazed, they work for the school and will protect the schools interests before protecting students.
