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!
Review Southern Illinois University Edwardsville
The campus is beautiful, and it's constantly expanding! The teachers are very good, and the classes are well sized. They allow for a good learning environment that is very beneficial to students.
My overall experience at my college has been great so far. I have been wanting to come to SIUe since my 8th grade year. I had a friends dad that would take us to the campus all the time. It started at orientation, I had a blast with my friends, and the events were amazing. I also got to volunteer at a farm for the very first time, because of SIUe. I had fun doing that and felt very fulfilled. Like i said before, the intramural sports have been fun, and I can't wait to keep doing those year round. I am excited for homecoming week and family weekend in october!
