    I am a junior in highschool searching for colleges to attend once i am out of highschool. This option has grown a lot on me due to the pricing and friendliness of those I have spoken to. This college also has a large variety of majors to choose from and I think I will apply!

    SIU-C is an interesting school, it is quiet mos of the time, easy to navigate; however, it is a small town so if your from a big city like i am you may get a little bored. Although, getting bored helps you get your work done and time to do other activities and it gives you more of a reason to join an RSO program their are hundreds of them and you can even start your own. Many of the people you will meet here are from mostly Chicago and Saint Louis.
