Southern Illinois University Edwardsville Reviews
When I first started looking at colleges, Southern Illinois University of Edwardsville was one on my list. I did what most high school seniors do, took a tour of the college. When the tour first started, I wasn't sure if I was going to pick SIUE to attend. As the tour went on, I fell in love with the school. When the tour was over, I knew that this was the college I wanted to attend. After applying and being accepted, I attended Spring Board for incoming freshman. Spring Board made me fall in love with the college even more and I couldn't wait to start classes in August. I must admit, I struggled a little bit my first semester, but it made me realize that my first intended major was not for me. It is now my second semester and I am taking general classes for Nursing! The classes I am enrolled in now have me excited to see what the future holds. I can't wait to further my education with Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.
I received my Bachelors degree at SIUE and loved it! All of my professors were very professional and supportive. The classes were hard, but the material was taught effectively. We lived in family housing on campus. There was a free after school program so parents could attend class or study. Living in a place surrounded by others reaching for similar goals was amazing.
I really enjoy attending SIUE and I have learned a great deal. Most often however, it is hard to get responses from the financial aid office if you need help with such issues and it leaves you feeling hopeless in the matter. But aside from this, I do not have any qualms with the school. The professors I have had thus far are always very fair with testing and grading, and always willing to go the extra mile to ensure your success, so long as you pay attention and try. I am attending to obtain my BSN and there is no doubt that this is a very competitive program, but it is one of the best in the nation for the price, so it's understandable. I think having Starbucks on campus is a major plus too!
