Illinois Institute of Technology Reviews
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.
I didn't have a pleasant experience at my time at IIT, the dorms were awful, and so where my hall-mates. There was a lot of bullying and racism in the dorms, and I didn't always feel safe in the neighborhood. I was lucky to make a few good friends, and have an excellent roommate my second semester. I joined the Esports as their treasurer, so I cannot complain about their extracurricular activities, The professors on the other hand, did not teach well. Many students in classes, including myself never understood what was going on, and ended up not doing too well and every test. The average score on any test was usually a C.
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.
