Major: Architecture (This Major's Salary over time)
Well, let's see.

The college of Architecture is a fairly good school. You can see this if you sit in on the sophmpore+ design studios- You would not see this, however, by being a freshman. The freshman year is filled up with rediculous general education classes that have absolutely nothing to do with your major (other than affect your GPA). Best thing to do, in freshman year is hang in there- you'll get to architecture sometime.

The UIUC campus is beautifully arranged. Everything is kept well, even when there are no people touring the campus. You can always count on perfectly green grass and bright flowers EVERYWHERE.

The Preforming Arts center is probably one of the best in the nation. It is incredibly equipped.

Food- well, i think all dorm food leaves something to be desired… just remember to eat at the specialty resturaunts- you can use your meal credits, and the food is excellent(by comparison).

Umm- professors are hard to get to- and once you do, it takes a loooooooonnnnnnnng time for them to respect you enough to give you a straight answer (and listen to you)… but once they are on your side…

Dorms are pretty cool, just make sure that if you don't want to be around drugs and alcohol, choose a substance free hall.

The student body is friendly, but if you are from out of state, it will be difficult to break into some of the 'pre-fabricated cliques' because most of the students here came with at least 35 of their best friends.

As for the school- overall, it's an enjoyable experience if you don't let some of the stupidity get to you. After all, there are a lot of stupid people in the world, and this university does not escape them.
