    If this school didn't give you the U of I degree and wasn't a cheap school for Illinois, then I would not attend. Plus, the location is closer to corn fields than things in town. At least in my department, there were almost no clubs and few opportunities. It's also clear that the staff here are mostly leftovers from the academic community. There are a few great professors, but still. ...Continue reading

    I attended because of the location more than anything else. The food is mediocre, the classes are mediocre, the people who work there are mediocre. This is a real shame because the University could be great, but everybody (teachers, students, staff, etc.) just try to get by with the bare minimum, making for a mediocre experience. ...Continue reading

    I am a commuter student and I really enjoy going to UIS. The campus is set on a giant plot of land and this university will be contending with U of I, SIU in 20 years. Brand new student is being built, as well as new club and organizations popping up. Great place to network and get a personal connection with professors. I was a transfer student from a small private university, that I disliked. The faculty and professors here will do everything they can to help you succeed! I highly recommend to other students, if you put forth the effort, teachers will also! I cant imagine going anywhere else! ...Continue reading

    There are a few good things about this school, but I wouldn't recommend it to almost anyone. The social life is by far the most disappointing there are cool people here, but nothing to do. Parties are broken up before they ever get good. There are some really exceptional professors, but most are just average. Feels like a high school. If you don't have a car, then you may become bored with what's on campus. On a brighter note, campus is really pretty, especially in the Spring. Overall, we're still pretty small, but hopefully that'll change and UIS will upgrade somehow. ...Continue reading

    I've attended Internet courses and visited only a few times. Yes, it's pretty small, but that's just the way I like it. It's easy to get involved and make good connections. There is simply not a better school for any public affairs major. Also, the location in Illinois' Capitol opens up a lot of opportunities. Oh, and it's the cheapest school within the U of I system I have the upmost pride for my UIS. I was challenged to do my best and feel I earned my education. Graduating from UIS has opened my career opportunities and I am forever grateful. Online course is no joke, they make you earn it. ...Continue reading

    If you are a hard worker and want to be involved in groups, you can easily make it happen! Most of the action in the city is in easy driving distance but that means you need to have a car. . or know someone with a car. The campus is located on the outside of town so there isn't much in walking distance. Its a great university, but with small classes, excellent education as a result! Rates pretty high on most lists as well! Lots of job offers come to graduates here. ...Continue reading

    It's alright, but if you hated the cliques in high school, well you won't be able to get away from that much here. They will try to help you with your problems, but don't seem to know what they are doing during classes. This campus is not very orderly and it seems like a mess when it comes to the academic side. The campus is pretty blah and the social life is very dull. Its a U of I degree and its pretty cheap. ...Continue reading

    It is what you make it, small campus! The people are paid to sell the school to make it sound much better than it really is. I know, I worked for them. Campus is in the middle of no where. Springfield has very little entertainment, I grew up in the area and know where stuff is at and there is nothing. No businesses are student-friendly. ...Continue reading

    Have really enjoyed my first semester so far. I have made lots of friends that are also commuters as well as friends that live on campus.

    Deer and ducks everywhere. Not much to do on weekends except homework, for the most part. Cool clubs and orgs to be involved with. Easy to connect with students, profs & staff. If you're used to huge cities with a bunch of excitement, you'll probably hate it. But if you're focused on grades and are looking for a little bit of added fun, this school is perfect! Professors in my department are very helpful and know what they're talking about. There could be more things happening on campus, but as it grows, I expect it's going to turn into an awesome university. It's easy to find a group of friends and make lasting connections. The U of I degree is a great plus. ...Continue reading

    Campus is separated from the rest of the city, not that Springfield is a huge, booming city or anything. I have had several major issues that they refuse to take care of and also refuse to make pulically aware. it is like they are covering their flaws up and have threatened to sue the local paper for publishing my story. Teachers are horrible, faculty is rude! ...Continue reading

    I don't want to be more specific.

    This campus is perfect for small city folks or people who want to get away from the city. The residence halls are great.

    The teachers here are pretty pathetic. It took a lot of work to get my classes scheduled on time every semester.

    U is or U ain't baby! Those who are unhappy and claim there is nothing to do are just creating a self-fulfilling prophecy. You're only as bored and alone as you wish to be. The campus provides lots of opportunities to have fun and meet people. Staying in your room bored and alone is your own choice. There are major flaws to the school but it is affordable for a university education. The school is obviously small so if you're looking for sexy females and parties UIS is not the place.

    The sole draw to UIS is that it is affiliated with the University of Illinois network. Unless you have a car and are comfortable driving in city areas (or are willing to pay a dollar each way to take the bus) you will be stuck on campus. Getting involved is crucial.

    Unorganized. It takes forever to get things that are required for registration, financial aide, etc. done because of their poor practices. The Education program is a complete disaster, with almost no on campus classes provided, and a severe lack of communication and knowledge about requirements. Very disappointed. The campus is tiny and the social life is nonexistent. Teachers and instructors at this institution as well as the students are only interested in barely passing classes, not learning or bettering themselves. Going there was a mistake and I'm glad I transferred. ...Continue reading
