dziura2, University of Illinois - Urbana-Champaign '16
Illinois was not my first choice in schools, but after I found a roommate that I clicked with online on a facebook group, I felt a little better about the school. Today, I can say that I do not regret coming to Illinois because I have had some of the most amazing experiences of my life in school and have met some of the kindest and most amazing people. Although U of I isa gigantic school, it is certainly not difficult to find friends in classes or in clubs, or even just at the library. People are extremely friendly and are always willing to make conversation. What I like most about my school is the tremendous amount of opportunities available to students to further their personal and academic growth. There are several opportunities to do research, more clubs than I can even count, and so many majors to choose from. At U of I, you can count on finding a group of people that will share similar interests with you!
