    Pros

    The university is of a good size, not too big and not too small. My department also plays quite well for our discipline, which is a plus (this does not apply to all other departments).

    Cons

    The location. It is 2.5 hours from Chicago and 3 hours from St. Louis. In other words, there isn't much to do here if you get out of town. Proximity to U of I is good if you are looking for collaborations. It is a teaching focused university, so it may not be the place for you if you are research-oriented.


  7. I loved working at ISU because everything is so closely knit
