The University of Illinois provided me with a good solid state education. I would recommend it. However, many of the students are from wealthy suburbs of Chicago, and the Greek system is sometimes oppressive and racist. It was such a large University though, that you can find your group of people pretty easily. The dorm life isn't the best, and most people get out of the dorms after their first year. I would suggest finding a mentor, a professor or an adviser to guide you through the University. That is what I wish I had, it would have been nice to have someone help me make decisions, as it is such a large University, it is easy to get lost in it all. It will seem like the greatest place on earth your first year, but the older you get, the smaller it feels, and the more ready you are to leave.
