I would say the best part of these past couple of years has been the academics because I've had some very good professors. However, the problems come in with the faculty in charge of the department I am in. The advisers did not seem to care for their students. I was misinformed about what classes I should take and hardly got help in planning out my curriculum. Besides that, the faculty in the college of education does not seem to care for their students at all. I've never felt any compassion or helpfulness from them. Besides the academic prospect, I also did not get much out of the social aspect in coming to this school. I have met a good amount of people but it's a commuter school so everyone is very self-absorbed and does not make the effort to keep their social relationships going.

The Art, Architecture, and Design building was supposed to be completely done with renovations before the first design students came in, but that simply was not the case. Often times you will hear construction through the thin walls while in Class. The building has misleading winding stair areas (some leading to nowhere.) I was hoping we would have computer labs seeing as how it is a computer oriented major but instead we have to bring our laptops in every day and hope there is a power chord available. With the amount we spend on our lab fees, we should have free printing instead of off brand moleskine notebooks. We see the same exact teachers every semester and if you really don't like one, oh fucking well. Registering for classes is a nightmare for this major, we cannot choose which instructor we prefer nor can we choose proper class times to work with our work schedule ( I personally want more 9am classes so I can work in the same day to help pay for school.) the lack of lockers In this building is very upsetting to those who commute to school. Often times you will be expected to come into class when most of the work you could have done sitting at home on the computer.

I hate this school, I really fucking do. This program needs to be updated yesterday. You would think graphic design would be a more updated major but alas it's ran by people stuck in the dada movement who are obsessed with Paul rand and Saul bass.

Tue, 23 Dec 2014 06:43:06 GMT StudentsReview 444-155492 444-155492 444 6 Biology Female Undergraduate Class 2018 1st Year Positive College is really what you make of it. I'm a first year student here at UIC and my experience has been mostly positive. I didn't apply myself as much as I would have liked to this first year, and even ended up dropping classes (which is okay) but it was completely avoidable if I had just attempted to study. You could say I became careless and too involved with the fun parts of college such as making friends and being involved in other UIC events. The quality of the education you will receive greatly depends on your teachers, but I have not had a teacher who was overly lacking. If you put in honest effort and try to gain something from your time at UIC you will be sure to reap its benefits.

Let me tell you... pre nursing does not mean you are garenteed to college of nursing. Lot of students here is competitive, and if you are not willing to face that do not come here. Medical district is 1.2 miles away, and literally all my friends talk about med med med. and this school have no social life. It doesn't have a good community since lot of people are commuters. So. If you just come here to study and want toget into medical programs. Your life is all about focus on your school. I'm transfering to uiuc. I know that I will have to face difficult courses just like any universities. But if you want a higher quality education go somewhere else. People say reputation doesn't matter in America... I know that reputation is huge in my home country but reputation truly tells you why that school derserves better then others. So many times I felt I deserve more then this... When I see others who doesn't give shit about school and spending their college just to get by.. Sometimes I wonder why i am here.. Well. I'm moving out.
