    I'd recommend Greek Life / athletics if you want to be social Most professors are here for research, not primarily to teach, and many are foreign, but the education is very thorough in each program. Social atmosphere leaves a lot to be desired and Greek life is your only option if you're looking for the college experience. Overall good, could be better. If you want a social scene... this is not the school for you (except you can try to get involved in activities). ...Continue reading

    Only go here if you get tons of scholarships, not with ticket price There is very limited social life and social activities in this school, but there is plenty in the city, since its located in Chicago. Most of the professors here at IIT are not here to teach, but to do research. So majority of the learning is done on your own andor with your peers, but not from your prof. What a lame excuse. The food is worthless, the properties are poorly maintained, every Top 20 IIT has earned in the Princeton Review is negative, it's hard to get funding for clubs, financial aid department is incompetent, bursar is rude and violates contracts. ...Continue reading

    IIT was a MAGICAL experience for me. Everyone is smart and everyone works hard. If you want a college scene type social life, you can join the Greeks, or just go to a differentschool. Everyone here who understands the atmosphere is happy. The state school type people are unhappy. ...Continue reading

    IIT is a cool school in terms of the architecture and engineering clout. Love the biology program. Most of the professors I have had have been amazing, the rest have been good, one was a disaster. Academics are challenging, and professors are generally accessible. Campus is slightly depressing but downtown is a quick train-ride away. Beware of privileged suburbanites. ...Continue reading

    Relatively good institute. While the proximity to Chicago is great, there is little social life on campus outside of the Greek community. The property is not kept up very well and not very welcoming. Do not regret my decision to transfer away. ...Continue reading

    nice campus, but its educative power still needs to be accelerate. NO Will you have a social life? NO Will you hear spoken English around campus? NO Will you struggle in classes?

    Grad student here. Very disappointed. Expensive tuition, theoratic courses and terrible education quality. Some instructors are not Prof or not industry experienced or spoke broken English.

    Great school. It is also out of the way of the city like UIC's campus so it has some nice green grounds to chill out on when warm. If you're looking for a luxury experience, go elsewhere but if you're a down to earth, not judgmental person looking to having a relaxed college life it's here. ...Continue reading

    Apart from the awful food and spotty at best internet, this school is really quite good. It's not easy, but nobody ever said it would be easy. If you're looking for a solid, city science and engineering school, would definitely recommend. Expensive, but pretty good on scholarships. ...Continue reading

    Will have good food? Even above the prestigious UIUC. Everything here is just about enough to do anything you want to do. All needs are met. Professors are generally fine.

    Very, very small, definitely not a party school, but you do get the chance to excel in academics, maybe find a party on the weekend. Really what you decide to make of it. Plenty of opportunities for research. When people complain about social life lacking here, that's very untrue. The Greek life here is amazing. If you want to be social, then join one or hang out with them. Otherwise, stay in your room and continue to complain. Overall, I love my school. The location Chicago is where id like to be. It has the green line going right through the campus too. The grounds are not that pretty but its an engineering and architecturall built campus. Its built towards convenience and design more so than to be old and pretty. The food is better than most ...Continue reading

    IIT has many good professors who want to help and see students succeed. Classes are tough for those in STEM, but rewarding when you see your progress. There are too many international students. There isn't a whole lot of socialization/fun on campus. Campus is quite ugly, but its changing. The lab spaces are outdated. Still a good school! ...Continue reading

  • Overall school rating 3/5
    IIT is a great campus if you get involved. There are incredible opportunities and the school is filled with incredibly smart cool people. Do not let the Tech school part change your mind because that is one of the best parts. The campus is unattractive, but boasts a couple of great buildings, such as Crown Hall and the Student Center. Best architecture program in the Midwest. ...Continue reading

    This is definitely a really great place to receive a challenging academic experience. Feel more like a number (CWID). Social life is minimal, if you commute don't expect to be informed much about campus events and clubs. Food is overpriced & gross! Grounds, buildings are outdated and in dire need of repair! Library is more like a cafe, dirty & too noisy! ...Continue reading

  • Overall school rating 4/5
    If you want to meet genuine people, party and at the same time be a 4.0 student you'll fit right in. If you want a social scene, it'd be advised to make some friends as schools like Loyola, UIC or the like. Also few girls go there, but that is what the rest of Chicago is for. A school to get a solid education, but not for the College Experience. ...Continue reading

  • Overall school rating 1/5
    Not much in the way of mentoring, if you are considering graduate school. Most people here are not very social and they keep to themselves. It's not the best environment for someone who wants to go to school and have a great social life. ...Continue reading

    I love this place. It is not the place to go if you're looking to party. But if you're academically focused and serious about your education, this is the place to be. There's lots of diversity and it's a collection of the smartest people I have ever met. ...Continue reading

    This school is all about academics. The grounds are not very appealing & need updating wmore of a park area for students to relax & study.

    For someone studying engineering, this is the best school in the city for it. Don't expect much of a social life. Some very smart professors and some bad ones. The other programs, especially Psychology are very lacking in direction and courses are not offered often enough to graduate in 4 years. Financial Aid is incompetent and the Bursars is rude. Best library in Chicago, though. ...Continue reading

    The student body is of a very interesting group. Outgoing and social but yet still happily nerdy and proud to be so. In addition, faculty is very helpful with students wanting to start new clubs. The commons was soooo delicious, and the campus was poppin on weekends. Ignore those cynical reviews you are reading here, I had the time of my life at IIT and I think it's the very best school in the world. :))) ...Continue reading

  • Overall school rating 3/5
    It can be a tough school, so be prepared to work but, it pays off and you can have a lot of fun here too. The bad part is that it is hard to find a really good teacher. Mostly, it feels like my education is self-taught. But if you can adjust, the career opportunities are great. The university has connections with a lot of great engineering companies. It also does a lot of research. ...Continue reading

  • Overall school rating 2/5
    If you want to do something fun and exciting, you defiantly have to go off campus for that. university seems to be more of a company than an educational institution. The fact that we now call ourselves Illinois Tech because ITT Tech is more reputable says it all. The first thing you'll notice is that the dorms are so bad the college covers them up with trees to hide them from the public. To add to that, the food is literally public school food. Most public colleges are better. ...Continue reading

    Good school all in all for CS Most of the events that happen while I'm on campus are for older people. Students aren't even aloud to attend unless you have a pass.

    Very good location, public transit available on campus in two stations.

    Its a great school but it is very expensive. U-pass is very useful in this setting. Allows unlimited use of chicagos public transit. The faculty truly listens to students concerns and is honest with us about what they are willing and able to work on. Dining is not amazing, but Sodexo works with a Student Advisory Board to do the best they can. Overall, IIT is an incredible investment. ...Continue reading
