The ME curriculum did not prepare me for my masters...seemed like a typical public school system as I now know it. Too many Chicago students, seemed like recruiting was heavy in the north. Crime was bad, Halloween parties were terrible.

If your looking for a solid school for an educated individual, this was not that school. I was in the communications building, and while the program is richer than most, the rest of the school was dragging it down. Classes were hit and miss, some felt very informative, others felt like show and tell. I have no comparison, but I felt that the work I was doing was not going to be respected by anyone in my field. I felt like, if i graduated in one year (I did not), I would have to take an unpaid internship (if i even find one) and then be out of luck on a job, out of luck on $50K, unless your lucky, wealthy, or connected. You think the social aspect wouldn't be that bad, but there was just no opportunities for people who can't/won't drink alcohol. I spent alot of time exercising, and staying away from the dorms. The living situation in the dorm was not good. I had a pushover RA, who didn't enforce the rules, and I can count on my fingers the amount of nights I actually got 9 hours of sleep. They say you can move rooms, but not without leaving the building, and heading to the towers. I just couldn't do it that easily. Should have left earlier but I felt like I had to finish the year.

It is like being in an alternate time and universe. Nobody has any idea of current issues and students are really out for themselves. They wouldn't piss on you if you were on fire. As far SIUC being a party school, I don't see that at all. I lived in Champaign-Urbana for many years and THAT was a party school. I went to UIC before coming to SIUC and the faculty is better here than UIC, but the students suck compared to UIC and the classes for GEN ED requirements are a JOKE. If you get anything less than a B in your GEN ED classes, you must really be doing something wrong. Getting an A in an SIUC class is like getting an D in most other schools. It is not very challenging at all and the TA's are not very good. Most of the classes are just powerpoint presentations that the instructor puts online anyway. I can read the damn book and the powerpoints, why do they need to take up the whole class to talk about it? The only classes I find challenging are in the Auto Tech Major, but most of the students there are real assholes who are being uber competitive for no reason. Anyway, I got 2 semesters left and I'm leaving here for good. This school sucks, this town sucks, the people suck, there is nothing to do here except outdoor stuff (which gets old very quickly), and the social scene here is way boring. If you are looking at IL schools, do yourself a favor and go to Chicago or Champaign-Urbana, as those are the only two areas worth living in, in this state.

It is not challenging at all, yet the majority of students struggle with the coursework.
