University of Illinois at Chicago Reviews
Review University of Illinois at Chicago
Staff and student staff go the extra mile to help students. Whether it be getting lost on campus, in the hallways, or having trouble with transportation, I've never had a problem getting help, which 10/10 solves the given issue at hand. I would say, communication between the college and their students could be a bit more thorough, but taking into account the fact that I'm only a freshman I think that's a loose statement and that I'll have a more accurate review once I've gone for a year or two. Overall, UIC seems to provide a very rich education background and I can't wait to attend!
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.
