Little Italy/UIC Reviews
There's a lot of food options around, so watch your wallet. Most of the fun stuff in Chicago can be reached via CTA. We have a CTA stop on campus, so very easy transportation into the city!
I enjoy the "small town" feeling in such large city. For example, when I walk to class and everyone who grew up in the neighborhood says hello and asks how I'm doing. It makes me feel like I am part of a very small and safe community. There aren't many things that I would change about the neighborhood. I do wish however, that there were more study places on the main boulevard. Someplace for students to go late at night to study together and get coffee or a snack.
Being in my neighboorhood is absolutely amazing because when I walk from school and from home I feel safe and I also feel like everyone else. What I mean when I say I feel like everyone else is that everyone around me is more or likely a student.
