Most Helpful Review for Illinois State University

I have learned so much already from ISU. I came to school having no idea what I wanted to do and no direction towards any specific career path. Illinois State helped me figure this out quickly my freshman year through its variety of General Education classes. It really opened my eyes to all of the options you have once you begin your education here.

    Illinois State University has awesome courses, and academic advisors that are really willing to help you stay on track to graduate by making your schedules and classes super easy and flexible. A beautiful quad, a great uptown area for shopping and eating, and the tuition is not as bad as it could be!

    This school is so awesome because there's a humongous amount of help for you. There are people there to catch you when you fall and even if you don't need it, the support systems are extremely helpful. There is literally nothing you can't do here!
