What makes ECC unique is the clubs, they also have something going on in the student area. Especially, with every semester! Free food, pens, planner, win cool stuff. We have different clubs, that do different things, such as shows for little kids or for adults.

Elgin community college is not the typical college experience. This is the place you come to if you strictly want to be done with the education aspect and get out into the workforce as soon as possible. From my own experience barely anyone in my classes socialize and the ones that do typically were in acquaintance before attending ECC. This by far isn't exactly a bad thing, for those that don't care much about the social aspect of college then this is a great choice. For me though the social aspect I of great importance. Fortunately attendance here for me is only a "truck stop", a simple place where I can further my college education while finding direction where I truly want to attend college.

I would easily choose this school over others because of the accessibility, cost, and atmosphere of the school. I live no more than five minutes away and most of my tuition is covered through FAFSA. Given that most of the professors actually care whether or not you pass their class, I know I'm in the right place!
