Illinois State University Reviews
I like the layout of Illinois State University. Everything you need is literally walking-distance away. Classroom sizes are small, so you don't feel lost or like a "number" amongst hundreds. The teachers are outstanding, and push you to challenge yourself. I am a Physics Education major, so my classes are very difficult. That being said, I still have confidence in them because I know I will be able to connect with my professors with ease should I need their help. I wouldn't change anything at all about Illinois State University. I love it!
I’ve met amazing people here! Most of the professors are absolutely amazing and care about what you need in order to gain control of your education. The food is amazing with a wide variety of options. The housing is very secured and makes me feel safe. The rooms are clean and just the right size. Although it is expensive, I’m hope I’m here again next year!
