As an graphics major… I absolutely hated SIUE. The staff at the school treats you 'like a number'. If you want anything done, you simpily have to do it yourself. And make sure to get a second opinion too, because you'll hear SO many different stories if you ask a simple question. As a freshman I found this extremely inconvienent. My husband attends SIUE - majoring in accounting. He is pleased with the business program as a whole, but agrees with me completely when it comes to the staff. Oh and one more thing, if you hate walking everywhere- especially in the winter… this school is not for you. The campus is very pretty and as a result of this they make the parking lots far away from EVERY building. A very big problem in the winter time and on rainy days. Just know one thing - this IS a STATE RUN institution… and you can tell. They are not out for YOU as the student… so if you want an all around great college experience… you may want to look somewhere else. Needless to say I am not attending this school anymore - their graphics program is horrible and the teacher (one teacher mind you) is narrow-minded. Not a good experience here at all. If you have any other questions about this college, feel free to write me at
