Description of campus life: You are told when you first get onto campus that there are so many clubs and if you can’t find one that you are at all interested in then if you will probably be able to make up the club.  

Quote from student who visited:  (What did you like? What didn’t you like?  How interested are you, now that you’ve visited the campus?)

I liked how everyone seemed to be invested in what you want to do and if you were confused on anything then they would point you in the direction that you needed to go.  I went on an open house day and so there were a lot of people and they had multiple things going on at once so you couldn’t see everything that they had to offer. I had never really thought about SIUC as a college that I would go to but after I went there for a visit I have added them to my list of top choices because I loved their campus and I loved how it seemed like everyone helped everyone.
