Academic Flexibility at City Colleges of Chicago - Malcolm X College: The faculty made everything difficult in transfering all my credits that I have earn in my previous College. The staff wouldn't accept my credit for the subject I have previously done, I had to take the placement test again which was not necessary, and made me waste my time and money, I would have been exceeding but I'am not since the staff needed me to retake the course that I already took and passed my first year as a freshman in Monmouth and I feel as if I'am being set up for failure.

Campus Resources at City Colleges of Chicago - Malcolm X College: i feel like in this school in order to be student friendly you must have to put yourself out there. i do feel like just a number and there is not really must spirit to get you into activites or social groups

Academic Flexibility at City Colleges of Chicago - Malcolm X College: i have yet to try and transfer credits. classrooms and curriculum are fairly easy and teachers are understanding if you try to make a social relationship with them

Student Body at City Colleges of Chicago - Malcolm X College: the school is somewhat diverse. different ethnic groups and social classes.

Tuition & Financial Aid at City Colleges of Chicago - Malcolm X College: the schools tuition is much cheaper than universities, but i still don't understand the high cost of tuition from all over. school is needed all around for people the excel in real life. how do colleges expect people to enter the world with thousands of dollars in debt. my education here i feel is not worth the money but a city college is the cheapest way to start off with out drowning your self in debt. i cannot receive financial aid due to my current income, but i hardly have enough income to make tuition payments. also my experience in the financial aid office has been horrible the attitudes on these women are appalling. you try to be polite and yet they still act like you're wasting their time when they are being paid for it. if they do not like customer service they should not have took the job.

Overall Experience at City Colleges of Chicago - Malcolm X College: their class size is relatively small so it is easier to get the help you need. they have a variety of classes you can take. some teachers teach right out of the book and some seem to make things up as you go along. there are many teachers which are from other countries so sometimes it is difficult to understand them.

Overall Experience at City Colleges of Chicago - Malcolm X College: as of what ive seen so far from coming to the school there are many fairs in which people do come and try to recruit them into their school or a job. i see a lot of different colleges coming but im still yet to see the alumni try and get the students out there. you must go to them in order to push your name out there.

Career Services at City Colleges of Chicago - Malcolm X College: they are very unorganized unless you know someone. they seem to really not care and dont try to put effort into the students.

Online Courses at City Colleges of Chicago - Truman College: I've had one hybrid course at Truman and the professor was very good. It was an anatomy and physiology class so there was plenty of materials to access and to study.

Tuition & Financial Aid at City Colleges of Chicago - Truman College: Since I have a previous Bachelor's degree, most of my financial aid money was already gone when I got here. But, I needed to get the last little bit to help me pay for last semester. The financial aid guy was awesome at figuring out how much I had left borrow and getting me set up for that. Unfortunately, to receive the remainder of my loan after tuition was paid, I had to wait a couple of months to get it. The reason for this, I was told is that sometimes young people have signed up for classes and got the full financial aid package, and took the money and ran, never showed up for classes. So to avoid this you have to attend class a certain portion of the semester before you can get the money, and they break it into two installments. (Always a few bad apples ruining it for the rest of us!)

Student Body at City Colleges of Chicago - Truman College: This campus = Major Diversity!! The three greatest areas of diversity at Truman are ethnic/ racial; religious; and sexual. I think our community is very accepting, but I'm a middle-aged, semi-liberal, white woman... my point of view may be skewed... : )

Career Services at City Colleges of Chicago - Truman College: What I've seen from Career Services seems good, but nothing to write home about. They didn't help me find a job. Very few of the listings they had for jobs were in my field.

Overall Experience at City Colleges of Chicago - Truman College: The quality of courses and professors is terrific. I brag about my professors all the time. If there's a weakness it is in the variety of courses offered. For instance, if I want to learn Mandarin, I have to go to another campus. The arts courses are minimal at Truman, but again, another City College has more arts classes or more theater. This is however, the way the organization is reorganizing. Consolidating all classes of a particular type together under one roof. This should supposedly be more cost effective- we shall see!

Overall Experience at City Colleges of Chicago - Truman College: I have heard from many current health care workers that Truman College is a really good school both for nursing and the CNA training. And a fact that Truman College students have a nearly perfect record for passing the NCLEx... the nursing exam.

Campus Resources at City Colleges of Chicago - Truman College: Admittedly, I haven't checked out the newly renovated athletic center yet... but, all the other resources are at least OK! The building is a little old and needs something to brighten it up... the elevators are crap... often one is broken. The library and computer labs are probably my favorite amenities, oh yeah, and the Veterans' Center- these are all quite good. The cafeteria (thank God!!) is being renovated this summer and will be under new management in the fall... I am hoping for the best.

Academic Experience at City Colleges of Chicago - Truman College: Disclaimer... I have just been accepted into the nursing program. I have had little to no problems with my professors and the administration in dealing with my pre-reqs, etc. It has, however, been kind of a pain in the butt to deal with the nursing office. All I can say is, I hope it is better once I am in the midst of it.

Academic Experience at City Colleges of Chicago - Truman College: I have heard students from other City Colleges (I think there are six...?), and a few who go to Truman and had taken a class or two at another campus... say that Truman is the best. I understand that the nursing program at Truman is more highly considered than the other nursing campuses (from the mouths of health care professionals). Personally, I agree. Nothing touched by humans is perfect, but the professors, the curriculum, the administration, support services, etc are all pretty amazing. The only part of Truman I would give a less than average grade... elevators and cafeteria!!

Academic Flexibility at City Colleges of Chicago - Truman College: The City Colleges are essentially community colleges... the talent that I have seen in the professors far exceeds what one might expect for the price tag. The professors are also, in my experience pretty tough, but fair. I have seen them give breaks to unprepared students (one in particular comes to mind), allowing them to take a quiz during the next class period.

Tuition & Financial Aid at City Colleges of Chicago - Wilbur Wright College: It's average. I feel like the 'activity fees' are stupid.

Online Courses at City Colleges of Chicago - Wilbur Wright College: I've only used Coursera before but I like this set up better.

Campus Resources at City Colleges of Chicago - Wilbur Wright College: The school looks like a mental institution. The teachers I have encountered are warm and friendly but the support staff seems to hate their job. My adviser is great though. I do like that they are updating the theater. I also like the green areas on campus and the presence of a lot of trees.

Student Body at City Colleges of Chicago - Wilbur Wright College: Our student body is very diverse but I think there is a majority of hardworking, dynamic individuals. It's definitely not a party school because most people are here to study, learn, and transfer their credits.

Overall Experience at City Colleges of Chicago - Wilbur Wright College: So far the administrative side has been a bit of a headache. I think there should be more involvement. That being said, the involvement of those who have taken the time to become involved has been phenomenal. The adviser I was originally assigned to was horrible, I never even met them, and they would cancel meetings last minute. The adviser I was re-assigned to has been so helpful and quick to answer an email when I feel like I've hit a roadblock. So far, the teachers I have had have been very caring and interested in making sure you understand the course material. I hope the positive aspects continue into my remaining time at Wright. Patrice Jarrett has been amazing. I cannot wait until I'm working with her on transferring my credits to a bigger school.

Overall Experience at City Colleges of Chicago - Wilbur Wright College: I think this aspect is what you make of it. Community college is a starting point. It's up to you to make it into something. There are people who can help you, but you need to seek them out.
