I chose to study at IC because of the scholarships I received, the location, and the faculty to student ratio. I came from a small high school, so I wanted to go to a college that was not going to be too overwhelming in size.
The curriculum is fine. I wish that there were more options for courses in my major, but the school won't give them more money to expand, which is part of the issue of limiting classes. I also wish there were some different general education requirements because I felt that some of the requirements were a waste of time and that I didn't learn anything in the class.
