3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: For many things, my family makes too much to be considered for financial aid, but I was awarded two different scholarships that helped pay for most of my schooling this year. As long as students apply for scholarships, there are so many that they are likely to obtain at least one

4 College Junior

Facilities: Since KCC is a community college, there are tutors available for students in need, and there are many programs that students can join to be involved. Also, since this is a smaller school than some universities, sometimes students are able to be accepted in other clubs that not as many people apply for

3 College Junior

Student Body: I feel that there is a variety of students at KCC, but most includes local students. Some athletes from out of state attend and that just creates even more diversity.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Although many students feel they won't get as good of an education at a community college, I feel that Kankakee Community College does a great job at keeping its standards at a very high level. I take part in many activities and clubs, so there are many opportunities for new experiences and involvement.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: There are different programs to obtain your two-year degree here, and many are challenging. If students look for internships or job shadow opportunities, they will find one easily if they put effort in talking to staff around the college.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: There are student computers outside of the classrooms inside the hallways, quiet library and free labs to go to.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: Microsoft 10 but limited pages of print.

3 College Junior

Facilities: This is a community college so the activities are limited and spirit is not present. I hope to get into a university so I can explore more opportunities to be involved and have fun with more people.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I received a scholarship to asist me with my financial needs so that really helped.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Overall a great place to go to college if youre trying to save money and for me it was closer to home so that helped a lot.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: Some of the courses were rigorous and time consuming, but not too bad.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: The financial aid helps a great deal and the staff at the financial aid office are very nice and will explain any questions you may have about the financial aid.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Only problem is that KCC doesn't always offer certain online courses and you have to wait to take some of them. The availability of those courses aren't the best. It is frustrating trying to fit classes into your schedule just so you can be a full time student.

3 College Sophomore

Career Services: There are no worries about having to find a job on your own after graduating. The career services will definitely put you on the right path to finding a job as soon as possible.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Computers programs are a little outdated and could be updated with newer programs or versions. Computers tend to be slow in the LRC.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Resources on campus are great!

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: A lot of African Americans, but there are a lot of different mixtures of races as well. All kinds of ages from out of high school to middle aged people. Overall a good majority of students are very friendly.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: They offer unique opportunities to get involved in things that people with no money wouldn't normally get the chance to do. They have job fairs that help make the job hunt easier for you when you're buried with school work and don't have time to job search.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Classes aren't always available. Bookstore is expensive. Other than that staff and advisors are very nice and are willing to help you with your questions and needs.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Workload is very rigorous and time consuming. You're not going to have time for anything but studying. In the end, this program is overall a very good program. Just put forth all effort and time into studying and you'll do great.

3 College Senior

Online Courses: I take mostly online classes and I think they are the best way to learn here without wasting your time in a lecture. Sometimes navigating can be a little tricky but all in all I prefer the online system.

2 College Senior

Student Body: Nobody is really happy to be here, it is a step in most of our educational careers, that we wish we could have stepped over.

College Senior

Career Services: I have never dealt with career services

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: I am here for general education courses but there is not enough variety available. I feel that i'm taking many similar courses.

2 College Senior

Academic Experience: I have had two professors who I found to be good teachers. The rest spent their class time talking about things that were not important then gave us exams over things they barely mentioned. I've done well in my classes because I read the whole textbook, not because my teachers have done a good job.
