I believe that a student that is dedicated to their studies and determined for their goals, should attend Southern Illinois University-Carbondale. At SIU it can be very easy to get caught up in the party scene or get yourself in some serious trouble, much like other universities. If a student is dedicated to their studies they will be sure to keep themselves on track to achieving their goals. With all of the financial issues the school has been recently having, it is even more of a reason for a student that attends there to be dedicated to their studies. In the end, we attend college to get us closer to our goals, and if we don't strive for them or put the hard work in, then you will make no progress to obtaining your goals.
