If you live to party, Illinois State University isn't for you unless you're an expert at drunkenly dodging campus police. It's not a flashy campus or a fun filled greek community. It's just a college that has all that it needs and what someone would want. Food's okay, area is pretty cute, bus service works. All that jazz. Otherwise, be prepared to pay out the nose for underage drinking tickets. In all other categories, ISU is a good school, but it's not a great one.
