3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: At Central High the teachers were helpful in classes and made learning fun with several activities, group projects, presentations. Through these I learned a lot of stuff because research would be involved which led me to know about more information on the ongoing topic in class.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: Online courses are not that bad but because I have been used to traditional class room style studying, technology seemed kind of dumb during high school. Our school switched courses from traditional to online because it is applicable in the real world and this will further help us students. The good part about online courses is that I can type my assignment and submit it and not worry about writing it down and turning it in to the teacher.

4 College Sophomore

Career Services: I am not really sure what are the post-grad services that Elgin Community College provides because I haven't started there yet.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My school has a variety of course options where it gives the students an opportunity to choose from and decide where they are headed for the future. The teachers there teach the specific course in a very professional manner preparing the students from the start for the main deal. The courses are understandable and worth being learned.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Students at my school are very much career-oriented, they already have a future planned ahead of them. They know where they want to go to college, what they want to major in. The students start saving for college expenses at a very early age and work really hard in academics and athletics to get scholarships and funds.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I'm going to start college in Fall 2016 and I plan to major in Nursing.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Being at Central made me realize that education is very important and it can take me to a bright future. During my senior year in high school a lot of my teachers helped me prepare for college and gave me information on how I could make my college life easy for myself. Teachers there understood my needs and were always available for help in studies and other matters too. They make the school environment fun and a great learning experience is availed.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: For orientation, the leaders are great and helpful. The school feels like new and lots of students like this school. i'd pick this school if i could do all over again because it is close by my house and affordable instead of going straight to a university.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Class flexibility is great, and classes are always convenient.

4 College Junior

Career Services: They always offer job fairs to help students find jobs.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love all the courses I have taken so far, they have all been very easy going and great classes. Same with the professors all my professors have been amazing and they really care about the students.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: All the employees on campus are easy going and friendly. Anytime I need help I can always get help.The school is very easy to get around.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: I feel like you really learn hands on, and thats the best way to learn is with real experiences.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Elgin Community College, is a great school. The professors really care about their students, class sizes are small. There is always extra help and resources if you need it.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: The class sizes are small which I really like because I want to know that I can get the interaction I need from my professor in order to understand what I'm doing and pass.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: The school usually has a job fair in order to help students to find jobs that will benefit them either by giving them more flexible hours and pay or by helping them gain more experience for their career.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I haven't ever had a problem with figuring out when to take a class because there were a lot of options for me that made accommodating my work and school schedule easy.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: I have taken two classes online and think that it is a really good idea especially for students who may have a really tight schedule. It allows students to have a range of time to turn in work, so it's not like continuous work constantly.

4 College Senior

Career Services: They give you almost everything you need to be able to transfer to a four year college

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: I don't think being a psychology major makes my experience at school any different than other students who are majoring in different fields, especially since I'm just focusing on finishing my general education before I transfer.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I am really glad that I chose to attend this community college over a four year college because I am getting the same education for a cheaper price seeing that I am just studying my gen eds. before I can transfer.

4 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: I've been able to learn what classes will be able to transfer and given the wider range of times/professors, I'm able to fit most of my classes around my schedule. I was a bit frustrated by the classes quickly filling up, forcing me to take a later class that was on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays (rather than on Tuesdays and Thursdays), but this was the only issue I've had yet. I also plan on looking into Study Abroad programs and feel it will go very well.

3 College Freshman

Career Services: I've not paid much attention to the career center because I already have a job.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I've had a few teachers who are "meh" in just about everything they did, but I've had more teachers who've cared about what I aspire to be, what I've been doing already, and just trying to push me to be better. I can easily thank many teachers for making me better than what I would allow myself to be out of laziness.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I've not really payed much attention to the employers recruiting or the job/internship prospects on campus, so I cannot really give accurate information.
