I really like the location, but honestly you need to make the best out of it to get the best out of your experience here. Commuter school, basically no school spirit anywhere to be found on campus. No football games, but it does have downtown Chicago. Don't live on campus especially in CTY, CMW, CMS, CMN not clean. JST, MRH, TBH are decent. Food not so yummy. Nice gym though! It has a great view and good classes. UIC's campus is beautiful.
