简评

College is often known for two things: parties and bad food. The dining halls at U of I don't do much to break out of that stereotype. Most students agree that instead of working hard to make creative new foods and variety, the University should just stick to learning how to make Rice Krispie treats properly. Cafeteria food is always going to be cafeteria food, though, which means either boring repetition or outlandish creations that make you skip right to the cereal bar.

Keeping the food fresh is also a problem, as students who have eaten slimy lettuce or stale Cheerios can tell you. It is a good idea to come early to take advantage of the fresh food. On the other hand, the hours can also be a problem. Most students don't like eating dinner by 6:30 p.m., especially when they are going to be up until 2 a.m. studying. Consequently, most dorm rooms are stocked with snacks and sodas. Seven specialty restaurants like A La Carte offer better food at more reasonable hours. When you are up late studying or just hanging out, there is nothing better than pizza or onion rings at Illinois Avenue Residence Hall. If it was not for specialty restaurants, the dining at U of I would be bleak. Even with these options, the University must work on its healthy food menu, as most main courses and appetizers are all simmering in grease and fat. Also, the vegetarian fare is limited to pasta and salads in most residence halls, which is less than tempting. All in all, the dining experience at U of I is stereotypically bad.

 

U of I’s campus has many places to keep students busy with daytime and evening activities. During the day at the Illini Union, students lounge between classes and eat in the basement food court, with a variety of food from Chinese to McDonald’s to Blimpie. The student bank and computer lab are here too, which is convenient for students who want to get work done between classes. In the Union’s basement the bowling alleys and the billiards area are student favorites. For students who don’t want to spend their nights at a bar, the Union is definitely a viable alternative. The gyms also attract many students; they’re up to par for Division I Big Ten athletes. Coffeehouses are always popular as well, especially the ones next to campus. Most offer wireless hookups, which makes them a great place for students to work and relax.

Beyond the gyms and arcade, the University’s greatest features are its beautiful buildings and grounds. From Foellinger Auditorium to the English Building, the buildings are aestheticially pleasing and interesting. Lined by striking brick buildings on all sides, the Main Quad maintains a classic feel with its tree-lined walkways and crisscrossed sidewalks, and the South Quad and Engineering Quad make the campus easily walkable. Students at U of I enjoy all the facilities the University has to offer, both in and out of doors.

U of I fits the bill for a Big 10 school in terms of its guys and girls. It is so huge that any attempt to describe a given “type” would be a generalization that obscures more than it reveals. The campus offers you many chances to meet intelligent, attractive men and women, though the brightest engineering minds have the reputation of lacking dating skills. That said, you are sure to meet many highly intelligent and socially competent engineers (some also highly attractive) in your classes—as well as liberal arts, art, and business majors who fit that description. There are also many interesting and cute international students, especially in the graduate programs.

Typical going-out wear for a guy includes a button-down long-sleeve shirt with jeans, while girls wear jeans and heels—some wear miniskirts, if the weather allows—with sexy tops. Even in the dead of winter, you will see some girls in nothing but a short dress and heels. As far as looks, most people find that there is no shortage of attractive girls, and certainly no shortage of those who are eager to flaunt it.

While Urbana-Champaign is bounded by prairie land, students often forget how close they are to farms and fields when they walk around campus. The U of I campus, nestled between the twin cities of Urbana and Champaign, is like a city unto itself. Every day, 30,000 students flock to the University’s popular main road, Green Street, which runs along the Quad and comprises the busiest part of the campus-town. Urbana and Champaign, however, are each cities in their own right. Each has a small downtown with shops, bars, and clubs, and each has its own unique charm and culture. They have truly kept the small-town feel as much as possible.

The University offers a daunting number of on-campus events, not to mention non-stop parties, so many undergrads don’t bother to explore Urbana-Champaign as much as they could. Among the most popular happenings are music shows, school sports games, and artsy events which are campus- or locally-sponsored. Some students do say that the campus bars and clubs grow old, and being so far from a big city can make them feel restless. However, there are always alternatives to the Green Street bars if you know where to look. Many musicians and artists call Champaign-Urbana their home, and with the University’s thriving theater program, there is no shortage of performances. Buzz Magazine and the217.com, both publications of the student-run Illini Media Company, keep students posted on community and campus events.

Nightlife at U of I is very popular. The bar and club scene is crowded every weekend, and they tend to be just as busy during the week. Specials like Tuesday Wine Night tell you that the party gets started early around here. Closing time is 2 a.m., but parties here do not start or end in bars for most students. There is generally “pre-gaming” in students’ apartments or dorm rooms. (But remember, the dorms are alcohol free, and we do not encourage you to be stupid. Still, it happens.) Once the bars close, people often pour out to either an after-party at a frat or an apartment. Of course, everyone has their own habits; some go out four or five nights a week, others just once, or not at all.

When choosing a bar or club, you need to feel a few places out. Even those that cater to a young crowd do not always appeal to younger students, and those that cater to an older crowd do not always appeal to older students. If you want to dance, go to a place that has a dance floor, but if you want to chill and just hear some good live music, then avoid places that only play hip-hop for the dancing crowd. U of I has so many options that you are sure to find half a dozen places that you love. If you are looking to avoid the bar scene you can always catch a show at Krannert, a game at the Union, or a concert at Assembly Hall.

While dining in the residence halls can be a problem, off-campus dining is guaranteed to make you gain at least some of that Freshman 15. There are restaurants all over Green Street, from predictable spots like Noodles & Co. and Potbelly, to the out of the ordinary like Zorba’s or Bombay Grill. There is Mexican, Greek, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Indian, seafood, and fine dining—most within a few miles of campus. However, some of the chains and high-end restaurants are not located near campus, which can be problem. If you have a yearning for Red Lobster, you will have to choose between an extensive bus ride or carpool.

Most students, especially freshmen, find it easier to stick to the options near campus. And of course, there is always pizza to rely on. On weekends, Gumby’s delivers until 3 a.m.—a fact everyone in college takes advantage of once in a while. Every Tuesday night, Gumby’s has a buy one get one free Pokey Sticks sale that is a must. Nevertheless, eating healthy can be a problem. There are places like Red Herring and Strawberry Fields that cater to vegetarians and those on a healthy diet, but for the most part, off-campus dining is heavy in grease and calories. Another problem is the distance to the grocery stores. If you live in the residence halls but still want to stock up on food and drinks, you are going to have to either take the bus or walk. The best grocery store, Mejier’s, is nowhere near Green Street, so if you want more than Hostess and Doritos, you are going to have to forget County Market and take a long bus ride.

Most students at U of I will tell you that off-campus housing is the only way to go after freshman year—if you're not already living in a Greek house, of course. Living in the dorms for four years is just not an option for most people, not just because of the “dork” stigma, but also because it is not necessary or financially smart. There are housing options all over campus, and most of them are closer to the Quad than the dorms are—and virtually all are much cheaper This housing generally comes with a parking space and air conditioning. Most importantly, it gives residents the option of hosting parties and offers residents more space and privacy.

Even if you are still sharing a room, you won’t have to wear flip-flops in the shower or eat with 300 other people. Some people might still choose to buy a meal package, but most people are more than willing to cook their own meals for a change. On the other hand, the newest, nicest apartments can be costly. You might have to choose between a cheap, ugly apartment and a chic but expensive one. The only thing you should not settle for is a bad landlord. The Student Tenant Union is there for this very reason. Before you even rent an apartment, you should check with the Tenant Union to see if the apartment or landlord has had complaints filed against them. If so, you probably don’t want to live there. Also, if you do end up with a bad landlord, you can go to the Union and complain. They will tell you your rights and help you with any housing questions.

 

The weather in Illinois is a consistent source of conversation and complaints. Not only is it freezing cold in winter and hellishly hot in summer, it is completely unpredictable in between. You may leave the house in a sweatshirt and coat in February, only to find that it is 60 degrees outside. Or maybe you leave the house in April in a tank top, only to be surprised by a sudden snowfall. Basically, if you’re not from the area or are not familiar with Midwest weather, you are definitely in for a few surprises.

The only thing you can do is be prepared. It is definitely suggested that you bring an umbrella and snow gear, because Illinois is also home to a lot of snow and rain. You will experience some of the most bitterly windy and cold days here imaginable, where walking out the door for class is like being slapped in the face. Nothing sucks more than walking to class in three inches of snow and ice, but it is a reality that Illinois students have to face, so be warned. If you are not going to be able to make yourself go to class if it is below 32 degrees, then you might want to rethink coming to school here.

The University’s business and agricultural programs are world-renowned and very popular, but the liberal arts and sciences programs do not receive the same patronage from the University. Some students complain about the state of the English building compared to the engineering buildings, claming that arts majors are passed over in favor of other majors. However, U of I still has great drama and writing departments, and it has recently added a creative writing master’s degree. Efforts are being made to reach out to other interests, but the bulk of this school is still the engineering department. If that’s your interest, U of I is definitely a competitive choice.

Many professors are dedicated to teaching and reaching out to their students. Most make themselves available, and a few have even been known to give out their home phone numbers. Still, it can be hard to get acclimated to a school of 28,000, which is why the University implemented discussion groups to accompany big lectures (though not all lectures are huge, and some classes are entirely discussion-based). These discussion sections are generally led by teaching assistants (TAs), some of whom are excellent teachers, though others are less than enthusiastic. If you want help outside of class, the best bet is office hours or online notes. Most big classes, such as general education classes, have Web sites that include notes and PowerPoint presentations online, so you never miss anything even if you skip a class or can’t keep up with the teacher’s notes. Of course, every university has its share of terrible teachers, but the faculty is generally well-informed and caring, and every once in a while, you meet a really great teacher who inspires you.

停车位情况的评价:[Pretty Bad] : There is very little parking around campus. Mostly, it's metered parking for 2 hours. That said, there are a lot of campus "permit only" parking lots that are free to park in after 5pm until about 2am, which is nice. Thu Feb 16 08:00:00 UTC 2012
校园规定情况的评价:[Fine] : I don't think the school is overly strict, except for where academic integrity is concerned. Thu Feb 16 08:00:00 UTC 2012
校外租房情况的评价:[Average] : It's a college town....lots of slum lords, lots of crappy apartments. The good apartments are expensive. It's pretty standard for any place like Urbana-Champaign or larger. Just go to the Tenant Resource Center and check out your landlord before signing a lease, always take pictures upon move-in and move-out, and be sure to turn in a detailed list of any apartment flaws within 72 hours of moving in. Thu Feb 16 08:00:00 UTC 2012
其他方面情况的评价:[Relatively Easy] : I didn't have to do any special application process when applying. Wed Feb 15 08:00:00 UTC 2012
其他方面情况的评价:[Lots of People Here] : There's high chance you will encounter hot girls and guys every day. Wed Feb 15 08:00:00 UTC 2012
