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!
Review Southern Illinois University Edwardsville
I absolutely love that SIUe is not in a typical "college town." This is such a populated area that it does not depend on the university to thrive. Edwardsville is an amazing community to be apart of! The campus is big, but easy to navigate. There are so many ways to be apart of campus and the community. St. Louis is so close that there is always something to do.
The athletics at SIUE are incredible! The school encourages a lot of student involvement for athletic events. For example, before events multiple different social groups host tailgates. Through tailgates students are able to interact with one another and have fun cheering on our schools team. One of my favorite parts of the "athletic scene" is the fitness center. The fitness center is amazing. There are so many classes, club sports, and just many chances to get in shape.
