University of Illinois at Springfield Reviews
Coming from a small town, this smaller college is perfect for me! It isn't too big, nor too small. The community here is so wonderful and accepting! The teachers do their best to make sure everyone understands the material and helps whenever it is needed. Overall, this school is a perfect smaller university!
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!
My counselor has been very helpful, the transfer coordinator has been very supportive and I have loved working with him. The campus is perfect for those who want a high quality small campus. The only issue I have had was they package dependent students' financial aid as living on campus automatically, which I found very annoying because it prolongs you getting a correct award letter because you have to correct them and they have to redo it. I feel like it would be more efficient to just pull the living situation of the student from their FAFSA instead of a blanket policy.
