It's hard to pick the best thing about IIT. However, when forced to do so, I would say that the environment is the best thing about IIT. The beautiful architecture of the campus, the well-maintained and plentiful greenspace, the urban location 1/2 a mile from Lake Michigan and 1 1/2 miles from downtown Chicago simply cannot be beat!
The male to female ratio is just under 4:1. Fortunately, as an architecture student, most of my classes are close to 50/50 and I have no problems meeting women, but I know a lot of other students struggle with that.
Yes, IIT has exceeded my expectations in every aspect. The professors and classes are more educational nad interesting than I expect, the people are more friendly and intelligent than I expected, the location is better than I expected, the dorms are nicer than I expected...the list goes on. It's a fantastic school, and I have no doubts that I made the right choice in a college!
