Overall Rating:

The campus is well laid out from North to South. There are 3 quads. Public transit is very well run. There is a large campus town area with shops, restaurants, and bars. Parking is sparse and it's hard to drive through. Professors are good the libraries are fantastic. Department management is hit or miss from department to department.

I did my undergraduate studies at this university. It is an excellent academic institution. The facilities are top notch and the instructors among the best. The colleges of engineering, psychology, and library sciences are among the best in the nation. The colleges of law, business, education, veterinary sciences, pharmacy, and chemistry are also very good. The university boasts a two time Nobel Prize winner in former researcher John Bardeen. For the sports minded there are many facilities available and an abundance of intramural programs. You can enjoy big ten basketball and football games. The university has one of the largest, some say the largest, fraternity and sorority populations in the country. You can have fun here and still obtain a quality education that will be respected everywhere.
