Illinois Institute of Technology Reviews
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.
The work can be difficult, but there are many systems in place to help. The Academic Resource center, office hours, and a good work ethic should help. As with any school, there are good professors and not so good professors. The not so good professors always understand what they are teaching very well, but may not be the best at teaching it; this usually just requires a little more effort of the part of the student. The good teachers are very good. Depending on how much you are willing to pay the options for housing range from fine to very nice. The campus is very diverse with students from all around the world. Located in Chicago, it is near an area that could be thought of as dangerous, but there is also a police station a block away from the school and roaming campus security. Given that the school is in Chicago, it also provides an opportunity to explore the many restaurants, museums, parks, and other attractions of the area; they're just a train or bus ride away.
