University of Illinois at Chicago Reviews
Review University of Illinois at Chicago
University of Illinois has so far been above what I had expected. The school is full of different people from different cultures, therefore creating better conversations and topics to speak about. The size of the campus, and the classrooms are also very helpful! Some rooms are specialized for one-on-one interactions, whereas others are meant for larger ratios of students to classmates. Regardless, teachers are very helpful and knowledgable when it comes to their specified class. They are always working hard, making sure that students are doing well, and giving out as much help as they can to make sure students leave college successful, not unsuccessful.
College of Urban Planning promises jobs and career paths, I would say out of a group of 30+ students, one found a job in the field, two in a somewhat related occupation, and the rest went on to become hair stylists and sales workers. I am still slogging through, 5 years later trying to play myself off as a marketer instead. Don't listen to the adults and don't waste your time, their job is to get your money! The campus is dismal, a hodge-podge of some antiquated soviet-looking architecture and bum urine. Social life and parties were nill, as most students commuted and at the end of the day just wanted to go home. The gym was nice.
The education and research received at this school is great! I was a part of the Honors College and I found my faculty fellow and advisor very helpful throughout my college career. The Honors College gets you personalized attention and they are connected in many ways. I've done research and shadowed physicians because of the Honors College and I am grateful for the experience! The University as a whole is a good one, there are lots of colorful faces and as a minority student I wanted to go to a college with a lot of diversity. Not only is there a diverse campus, the faculty cares about you as a student and will do what they can to help you. Faculty want to talk to you so go see them and ask for help! I wouldn't change where I went to school because the education is great, the location is great (just outside downtown Chicago), and the people are great as well. If you want a middle-sized/urban university, I say go here you won't regret it!
