ISU is a bargain financially and an extremely underrated school academically. Undergrads have a large and varied choice of activities, and can even participate in research that at a lot of other schools is only done by graduate students. Nearby highly ranked schools, large and small, often piggyback on ISU because they don't support the kind of student activities and competitions that ISU offers. There isn't the grad inflation or last minute course drops available as with other schools. Ultimately, the education and value accumulated at ISU tops the vast majority of other schools, including countless schools with bigger name reputations.

ISU is a fantastic institution. The academics are great here, but you have to study and put forth effort unlike other state schools in Illinois. The party scene is awesome and gets way better when you turn 21. The girls here are just simply beautiful! If you're looking for a state school in Illinois that is very reputable but still a fun place to be then ISU is the place for you.
