I would always choose to go back to AIC if given the opportunity. The on campus life was fun and it taught me a lot at a time when I thought I knew everything. I made friends that are still in touch 20 years later. The professors were very intelligent and went out of their way to get to know you. You were never a number there. Getting in to see a Dean was as simple as knocking on their door and if they were in, they'd see you. The activities were abundant. There was always something to do. Student Activites Committee had famous celebrities, great bands, game shows. The dining commons actually had edible food. The worst thing about it was parking and the neighborhood. Situated in a predominantly high crime area it was a little daunting when you needed to go off campus. Although, it is situated near many great things, the Basketball Hall of Fame, numerous malls, plenty of parks.
In the 1905 college football season, 18 men were killed and 159 more permanently injured during regular U.S. collegiate football games. The NCAA was subsequently formed to establish rules and require protective equipment.
