Yelp connects people with great local businesses. Our users have contributed more than 36 million cumulative reviews of almost every type of local business, from restaurants, boutiques and salons to dentists, mechanics, plumbers and more. These reviews are written by people using Yelp to share their everyday local business experiences, giving voice to consumers and bringing “word of mouth” online. The information these reviews provide is valuable for consumers and businesses alike. Approximately 86 million unique visitors* used our website, and our mobile application was used on approximately 9.2 million unique mobile devices, on a monthly average basis during the quarter ended December 31, 2012. Businesses, both small and large, use our platform to engage with consumers at the critical moment when they are deciding where to spend their money. Our business revolves around three key constituencies: the contributors who write reviews, the consumers who read them and the local businesses that they describe. Yelp communities have taken root in major metros across the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Austria, The Netherlands, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Belgium, Australia, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Singapore, Poland and Turkey.

As one of the top 200 research-funded institutions in the world, UIC faculty discover the things that others teach. Choose from 15 academic colleges including the UIC College of Medicine-the largest in the nation-which educates one in six Illinois physicians.

What's more, 75 percent of tenured faculty members teach undergraduate courses and 83 percent of full-time instructional faculty have earned a PhD or equivalent. But it's not all work and no play at UIC... Our 16,911 undergrads and 10,669 graduate and professional students make up one of the most diverse student bodies in the United States. Whether living in residence halls, near campus or commuting, you'll find there's always something interesting going on, from social events, clubs, sororities and fraternities, to two state-of-the-art fitness centers, and more-not to mention everything Chicago has to offer just minutes away.
