| Going to SIUC has been the best experience of my life. It's very hard for a lot of students to get through freshman year down here, so I understand why there might be a lot of disgruntled negative reviewers out there, but the college experience at SIUC is well worth the money and time.|
I am an english major and felt incredibly satisfied and sufficiently challenged (but not too challenged in my classes). I was also able to take advantage of undergraduate assistantship positions which allowed me to do work with what I was studying and I got paid for it.
The student body here is incredibly friendly and all faculty I've dealt with have been helpful, accessible, and nice.
I wasn't the best student in high school and I pretty much came to SIUC because it was the only school that would accept me. Now I feel like I couldn't have picked a better school. SIUC has motivated me so much that I'm now a straight A student and I'm definitely headed for graduate school in the fall (my wonderful professors guided me through the admission process and I've already received acceptances from two schools!).SIUC is a wonderful place to attend school if you're looking to get involved and learn a lot.

| Having made my college decision without much thought, i consider myself very lucky. I love it here, i love the people and the school itself. Though there are many places that are begining to run down quit a bit, this is still a great and beautiful place to do. There is also so much to do in the surrounding area. If you are not one for the outdoors though, this isnt the place for you. |

| During my career, my collegues have come from many univeristies inlcuding Harvard, Rutgers, Cornell, Stanford, Cal-Berkeley, Wisconsin, Oregon State and many others. My education from Southern Illinois has allowed me to more than hold my own with the graduates from these and every other school that my co-workers have come from. In fact, based on the individuals that I have worked with, Harvard and Stanford are over-rated (Cal and Cornell certainly deserve their reputations). SIU worked out vey well for me. Remember, you can find distractions if you want to because at a large university like SIU there is always something going on, but you can also choose to only study. Do some of both, but mostly study. |
