The university is located in central Illinois across the towns of Champaign and Urbana. The school is well known for its academics, athletics, party scene, and school spirit. It is consistently ranked among the top universities in America in U.S. News and World Report. The university is commonly recognized for its exceptional engineering and business programs. It was also ranked the eighteenth best party school in the United States in 2009 by the Princeton Review. It is home to the largest Greek Community in the country with over 50 fraternities and 30 sororities. Alumni from the university are some of the most successful men and women in America, this includes Roger Ebert, the founders of YouTube, Deron Williams, and much more. Whether it is attending a Big Ten football game, going out to the bars, or chanting the famous I-L-L-I-N-I chant the students of this campus love their school.
My four years at the University of Illinois was the best experience of my life.
The University of Illinois is the greatest school in the Big Ten.
Located in Indiana: the least significant state in the midwest, if not the entire United States. It is also commonly known as the worst school in the Big Ten Conference. Their major athletic programs include Division I football and basketball, which each managed to win just one conference game in 2008-2009. The university has great business and journalism programs, however the majority of their academic programs do not even compare to other Big Ten Schools such as Northwestern, Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan, and so on. The university itself is somewhat attractive, especially for it notoriously being located in the white trash capital of America. The people are friendly and the party life is above average. Although, of the bars that exist, none compare to those on the campuses of Illinois and Iowa. Basically, Indiana is a school you go to for one week out of the year to enjoy Little 500: a couple days out of the year when students drink and party and Indiana actually has something going for it. If you are considering attending the university, think to yourself, do I want to be a Hoosier? That is after you look up the definition of quite possibly the lamest Division I mascot in the country.
A degree from Indiana University got me a job at McDonald's. Would you like fries with that sir?
I transferred to Ohio State, after just four months at Indiana University.
I went to Indiana University for Little 500, I drank more at the bars at Illinois on Mom's weekend.
