I have had a somewhat positive experience with UIC. I
am a freshman from a local suburb about 20 minutes
away, and I knew what I was getting into when
I accepted here. I live in the dorms, which are
very nice, and everyone here is very friendly.
think most of the people who review this school commute,
and lets face it, youre really not going to make
friends when you only show up to campus for class.
People who say it is hard to make friends are
most likely anti-social themselves, because I am pretty talkative and
have made some amazing friends!
The only bad thing about
UIC is the general feel of the school. It is
NOT your typical big university: there are no football games,
no beautiful green quad, and not a lot of school
The academics here (so far) have been going
pretty well. Right now I am only enrolled in gen
eds, but I have had a good experience with them.
My professors are all quite good and I have been
lucky to have not had an international professor yet. There
are many complaints about professors not speaking English very well,
but I havent had any problems yet.
Overall, I really
like UIC. You are one train stop away from the
beautiful city, and there is ALWAYS something to do here.
I just wish I could experience things like football games
and big sorority events, but I'll just visit some of
my friends at U of I for that.
