  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    I'm a returning student heading back to SIUE, but I always loved the atmosphere of the campus. The housing is extremely nice as well and very safe.

    SIU Edwardsville does a lot to cultivate community, creativity, recreation, and safety on campus. The Morris University Center has a Starbucks, Chick-Fil-A, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, as well as seven or eight less common food services including a relatively inexpensive Asian stir-fry stand. There is also a billiards room and a bowling alley. On the main floor, there is a large square pit lined with couches that is often used to host entertainers - from student musicians to belly dancers - and monthly multicultural days when clubs that celebrate the various ethnic heritages represented on campus will provide free food and entertainment typical of their culture. The Student Recreation Facility is large and extensively equipped. There are multiple weight rooms, an indoor pool, a group activities room with aerobics equipment and a speed bag and heavy bag for martial arts training, a rock climbing room, several basketball, squash, and racket ball courts, a running track, and lots of cardiovascular exercise machines. The Gardens are a beautiful, tranquil place to go for a walk, clear your mind, and just relax. A small pond at the edge of the gardens has a really cool pagoda gazebo surrounded by fragrant fir trees and, in the spring and late summer, lots of lush flowers. It is very easy to make friends at this school. Most people are very easy to talk to and have a good balance of work and play. SIU Edwardsville isn't a party school but it's not so rigorous as to be lifeless either. Clubs, classes, and even work-study jobs are great ways to meet some of the really cool people here.

    There is a large amount of not-so-intelligent people from STL and Chicago that can be quite obnoxious, but once you learn to avoid them it's not that bad because none of them are in my classes (currently on Pre-Pharm track). The campus is absolutely beautiful and nothing is more than a 10-15 minute walk, I highly encourage students to get a bike though, it makes things much easier.

    There are a ton of things to do here at SIUE. No student has any reason at all to say they don't have anything to do.
