I was robbed on campus and the security on campus was not helpful in any real manner. I ended up transferring colleges. Make sure you know what you're getting yourself into if you decide to go there
IIT is a really good school, filled with plenty of dedicated professors and counselors. Everyone seems to be concerned with the students' futures.
IIT sits in the middle of Bronzeville in a largely residential part of the neighborhood, right next to the home stadium for the White Sox. High criminal activity on the outskirts of campus, but as long as you're with others its relatively safe due to the high presence of local police. Local area is seriously lacking in diverse commercial spaces and recreation. However, just a short bus/train ride up north will get you to South Loop, which is bustling with an enriching city life and home to Columbia College. Professors at IIT are varied, but the College of Architecture 4th and 5th studio professors are known to have prestige and it's great to have exposure to their expertise.
Campus food is very expensive and LIMITED. The school does not consider the student body and what they want to eat. Very little healthy options and not very vegan/diet friendly. They would do well to incorporate small shops of restaurants on-campus as UIC has done.
Review Illinois Institute of Technology
IIT is a great school with amazing diversity. It's smaller than most universities and really wants to graduate their students. They provide a lot of ways to help students. There are a lot of ways to be involved on campus.
Great school to attend especially if you are interested in studying engineering or computer science. Classes are small and you are able to get the attention you deserve from professors. The professors have high expectations so be prepared to work hard
So far it has been great. They are very helpful with any questions you have, there is always someone there to help you. It does not matter if you call, go in person, or email them, they get back to you as soon as possible.
The school is fantastic. A little pricey but besides that it is a great option to attend college. They offer lots of scholarship opportunity so you should be sure to check those out.
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 university is great and it has impressive buildings. In terms of academics it is not easy if you are a party person but if you work hard and have a little nerdy in you, you will find it very impressive and never regret choosing IIT.
The educational experience at Illinois Institute of Technology is good for the most part. The engineering classes offered are very good and taught by very passionate professors. However, there are some professors in different departments are not very good, and I struggled to learn from the professor's lectures.
I just graduated from illinois institute of technology with major in information technology and management. The past 4 years I spent in this school were the best of my life. Learned a lot of things, met a lot of nice people. Everything was great except the food in the center court wasn't that good. Overall i had great experience with very good professors
Illinois Tech is a small and underrated university that stretches every endowment dollar it gets. For a school of its academic caliber, I feel that it is certainly underfunded and undervalued. The professors are aware of the academic prestige of IIT's history, and work diligently to maintain the rigorous level study to turn out the most equipped graduates they can. Due to this commitment and a lack of necessary funding, the university suffers on most every other facet, from facilities and amenities to simple maintenance. As a result, IIT attracts students who value the academic and professional focus of the Chicago-based university, and students who either aren't concerned with the lack of investment in student life, or who are willing to make do with what they are offered.
My experience so far at IIT has been average. Academically, the school is great. The classes are challenging and they really make you work hard for your grade. I love my major and my classes. However, in regards to most other aspects such as social and campus environment, IIT is not the best. The campus has had many recent safety concerns regarding incidents occurring near or on campus. In addition, since a majority of the student community commutes to school, there isn't much participation when it comes to social events.
IIT is a great school for tech majors. It is very diverse with almost 200 countries represented in its student population. The campus is very safe, but the areas outside are not as safe. Professors are great and there is a lot of value in the school All students receive some type of scholarship.
I love the professors and the classes you are able to take! The community of people at the school are wonderful people to be around, but more importantly, the education you get from this school is fantastic. The only downside is that the campus is a little old compared to the time we live in right now. Overall, an amazing university.
According to my survey, of 500 students in Illinois tech, 455 students (91%) do not like food served here. 250 students participated in my survey are international students. 99% of them do not like food here. Therefore, I have requested to Illinois Tech's Resident Hall Association to change college's meal plan and food.
There's not a lot of the "typical college atmosphere"- after all, it is a tech school sitting in the middle of the third-largest city in the US, but if you want to study and get your degree it's not a bad place to be. I haven't had much difficulty with the administration, but some people do. As for the profs, it's a mixed bag, but I've had mostly good ones. The housing and food could be better, but they're passable, and again, you're probably not going to spend much time at home... you'll be spending most of your time in class/lab and in the library.
Review Illinois Institute of Technology
Illinois Tech has dedicated resources for looking into matter like these. It's pretty good on safety.
Overall experience at Illinois Tech has been great.
If you're really interested in mixed cultures then Illinois Tech on campus facilities are one of the best places to stay.
