UIS is an amazing University. The experience you get at this university is what you make it. The school is working to advance in Greek Life, diversity and expanding to meet the needs of the students. No UIS is not perfect but it's perfect for me. This school is small, and quiet. The student life office offers plenty of events to keep students busy and they offer students leadership opportunities that will allow professional growth. The class sizes are small, so you have the opportunity to get the one on one help you need from your teachers. The advisors are friendly, and our Vice Chancellor will add you on Facebook (She likes posts too). IT'S GREAT TO BE A PRAIRIE STAR!
Review University of Illinois at Springfield
I have loved my experience at UIS! I am a freshman accounting major living on campus. I love the small campus atmosphere. I can get anywhere on campus in about five minutes. You also get a personal relationship with your professors, as they all know you by name. You won't just feel like another number. All the faculty that I've interacted with have been nothing but kind and helpful. I truly feel like everyone at UIS is looking out for my best interest. The only negative I have is that the food options and hours can be limited.
Definitely not a perfect school to attend, but it's highly rated for its online classes and it's on the lower end of the price spectrum when it comes to attending school. My professors so far have been diligent and very attentive to my questions, however, I feel they sometimes have unrealistic expectations of students. For instance, a lot of online students have chosen to attend school online because we do not have the time to attend school due to our work schedules. While online school is definitely more flexible than a set class schedule, it's difficult for me to complete my assignments when my professor is asking me to read 200-500 pages a week, watch instructional videos, post in a discussion board, and complete a homework assignment. And that's just one class I'm taking...
In all, it's a good school, just need to avoid those professors that tend to be a little overzealous with assignments.
