I chose Kennedy King College because it was conveniently located within the community where I grew up. The class schedules are very versatile, there are morning, afternoon, and evening/night classes. It is a very mature atmosphere with a lot of tutoring assistance. The professors are very knowledgeable and flexible in their hours of availability, most professors go above and beyond to help you succeed. I give Kennedy King a B+ rating because it is an excellent community college, conveniently located within our community, and it is a brand new building. However, you do tend to run into some students that are not exactly serious about their education, this tends to disrupt the education of the serious students. Overall it is a wonderful learning environment.

The Community Colleges in Chicago first off is great it save a lot of money for students especially for students that can't afford most universities in chicago or Illinois. At Kenndey King College our excellent popular careers are Culinary Arts , Engineering Science Broadcasting and Child Development. However, they other career majors that also excellent for students who eager to intend their immediate employment or jus want to upgrade their professional and technical skills. City College of Chicago alumni system in Illinois is the most largest in the nation. They have excellent college funding and gave $ 1 million in the last seven schools. They also offers a bunch of job employment opportunities for students for full-time and part-time

I've had nothing but great experiences from KKC. Though some of the faculty members seem as though they don't like to be there, the others make up for those lacking members. Most teachers care, a lot! They treat each person as an individual instead of treat the school as a group.
