About Illinois Colleges and Degrees

Illinois is the fifth most populous state in the nation, largely due to its largest city and third largest in the nation, Chicago. The Windy City, as it's known, plays host to numerous venues for entertainment. The nightlife is filled with night clubs, jazz lounges, and other attractions. The city is home to many professional sports teams from all of the country's major sports. The other major cities in the state are Aurora, Naperville, and Rockford, which are severely eclipsed in size by Chicago.

Being the mecca of industry in Illinois, Chicago serves as the driving force behind job development and education. Top schools in the city and its surrounding areas include the University of Chicago (boasting the top economics program in the nation), the University of Illinois, and Northwestern University. Jobs which are projected to grow significantly are those in network communications, occupational therapy, and mental health. Getting an education from one of the many schools in Illinois should lead to a promising career in the Chicago metro area.
