  • I am a current student here

    As an incoming freshman at the University of Illinois, I was very nervous arriving at a school with a student population greater than my hometown; however, I quickly learned my way around our beautiful campus by walking around and exploring Urbana-Champaign on the great bus system. Being in a smaller major (I-Health) within the College of Applied Health Sciences really helped me find my place because I was not only able to get to know my classmates really well, but I was also able to get to know my teacher and the director of my program on a first name basis. I have gained so much knowledge and experience during my time at the U of I, and even when a class was really difficult, I knew I would succeed because all of my professors were very welcoming and helpful during and outside of their office hours.

    UIUC really has a huge Greek Life presence and being involved is a good way to meet people. Joining any sport or club is like being in a small fraternity too because they usually host events outside of their primary function.

  • I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    Living in this town for a fair amount of my life and having a sibling who attended has let me know a lot about this school and its opportunities. It's ranked one of the highest in the country, and it's campus is excellent if you're willing to go and explore around. There's always something new to do here.

    The school is definitely difficult but with the right amount of studying and dedication, it's easy to do well. Come in with test scores above average or better for academics. Also, have a wide variety of extracurriculars and that'll definitely increase your ability to be accepted and broaden opportunities in the school itself.

    UIUC provides a friendly environment for student of all backgrounds and offers various great programs for students to engage in outside of the classroom. The professors are always great and more than willing to answer any questions that students might have. No matter where your interests might lie you will always find a class oriented to it!

    I really love the school for the academics, however not as diverse as I would have wanted. Professors and T.A.s are caring and will help out if asked. Working and studying is extremely possible at UIUC.
