I do not like that Northern Illinois University has so many graduate students teaching classes. From my experience, they don't really care because they're so busy with pursuing their own education. They don't take the extra time to answer questions, help prepare students for tests, or teach everything that is essential to succeed ( they tell you to go read the book and yet there's so much extra time in class that they could use to teach ). Aesthetically, Northern Illinois University's not appealing. They could definitely update their buildings, hire landscapers to plant pretty plants, paint, keep all cafeteria's sanitary, and pick up trash. Sometimes the atmosphere feels depressing just because it's so gloomy/dirty looking.
