NIU is a very spread out campus that isnt attractive, architecture is terrible. Dorms overall are terrible. It has no wow factor whatsoever. You tell me, what wows a new student when they pull into DeKalb? Annie Glidden Road and nothing that makes sense campus wise to the left or right? I was shocked when I visited, you dont even feel like you are pulling into a campus.

Huh? Drive or walk down Lucinda or Castle Drive and for sure you feel like you are on a college campus.

Wow factor for me? One visit to the Paperback Grotto is what did it for me!

That's harsh. I've been to many colleges and I'm quite fond of NIU. All of the recent upgrades on campus have made NIU a very nice campus. When I took my daughter to visit numerous colleges, including Virginia Tech and WVU, their dorms were not nearly as good as NIU.

NIU does lack the diversity of those KKK rallies Toledo hosts

Take it with a grain of salt. . . for a total annual cost, they add tuition and room & board together. For some reason at NIU they list room & board at $0. Not quite apples to apples.

Bingo.

Look at tuition vs. some of the other schools on there. If anything it explains why kids don't go to NIU.

until this year I think, many out of state students could attend the U of Alabama football factory for nothing based on "merit" scholarships even for students who were not that meritorious.
