I believe Illinois must be a very beautiful state with friendly people and good food. One of my classmates went to study in Illinois College and decided that she wanted to live there and not coming back to Malaysia.
I am not so sure which college she is studying, maybe Westwood College because beside academic, students can enjoy a number of entertainment and cultural offerings-art galleries, science museums, concert venues, sports arenas and tons more.
With the countless outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, fishing and kayaking, I myself would love to study there as long as possible! So, if you are deciding which Chicago College to attend, do consider Westwood. To me, studying is about having fun.
