Why did YOU choose Illinois State University?

Every student and every alum had their own reasons for choosing Illinois State. Maybe it was because of our academic programs, or because their parents went here, or because they felt at home during their campus visit.

As thousands of high school and transfer students prepare to make their own decision about applying to and attending Illinois State, we wanted to hear from current Redbirds about why they chose ISU.

We asked students and alumni on Twitter to explain #WhyIChoseISU. We’ve posted some of our favorite replies below.

And just a reminder: The preferred application filing period for fall 2015 enrollment is November 15. Apply now!
