WHAT I LIKED

In my experience, UIC has been a great school for me to explore my career and social life.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

While I was on living on campus, it felt empty at times. This was mostly due to the fact that it is a big commuter school.

5.0

WHAT I LIKED

Everyone is there to help you succeed. That is something many might night find at another college.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Being a commuter you sadly lose the college experience feel but other than that the university is amazing!

4.0

WHAT I LIKED

It’s a nice place to be, with lots of students around, lots of class options. Not too many social events, but that wasn’t something I was looking for much. There is plenty of places to go, good study spaces, good atmosphere.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There aren’t too many healthy options for things to eat on campus. Many places tend to be loud, and it can often be hard to find privacy.
