4 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: Very cheap. Great way to save money and get a good education

3 College Freshman

Career Services: ICC is a community college so the alumni are not very big part of the school considering most went on to pursue a higher education

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I am undecided therefor I would not know what it is like. However, they have many programs and opportunities for students of all kinds

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Very easy process. If you are ever confused call the school and they will have a counselor help you set up classes

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: ICC is a great school if you want to save money but if you are looking for a great social life it is not the college for you

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I was able to get accepted to the Honors Program which pays fully for tuition so that is super nice. The financial aid office isn't the easiest to deal with.

College Senior

Career Services: Illinois Central College is a community college and therefore does not really have very many post-grad services in the sense of connecting people with job opportunities and keeping up an alumni network.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: The internet connection around campus is very slow when trying to use your own computer. The gym facilities are very nice and the library is adequate.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I have pretty much been able to plan out everything on my own so that has been great.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: It's okay. I wanted more of a social life but I had to go here for financial reasons.

4 College Junior

Career Services: My advisor has been very supportive of me transferring.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: It is what I had only expected it to be. Nothing special.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: I am a pre-nursing major which is unfortunate when it comes to scholarship opportunities.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: All the teachers are pretty average. They do care, but not as much as they could.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The cost is perfectly fine when you compare it to the education you're getting.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: The employees are helpful, but they aren't that friendly most of the time.

3 College Junior

Student Body: They are pretty diverse. It wasn't what I expected honestly.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Reality is, this is a 2 year community college. It's grunt work to get to the classes that actually deal with your major when you transfer to a 4 year college. The teachers are hit and miss when it comes to caring about their students. When that happens you just have to grin and bear it, the semester will be over soon enough. The students are either thrifty with their money by coming here, which means they or are simply going because its a social norm.

College Freshman

Overall Experience: Let's be honest, this is a 2 year college where you have to do the grunt work before you can get to the 4 year college, where your classes relate to your major. The teachers are hit and miss when it comes to caring a out their students. Grin and bear it because the semester will be over soon. The students are either hard working or not at all. Grin and bear it. The semester will be over soon and soon enough, you will be transferring to a school you prefer.

College Freshman

Career Services: Although there are plenty of resources available on campus, they are mainly for students who are undecided and/or not in my major. Have a very specialized major and have built my own network of people outside of the college for me to find internships and job opportunities.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I am double majoring in Agricultural Communications and Agricultural Education which albeit are two majors most people aren't aware of, but all students in agriculture related fields have a specialized advisor (although they all share his services), who is absolutely wonderful at his job! He has been in the business for a long time and knows exactly what classes you need to transfer into the school you want. This is treatment that from what I have heard doesn't happen with the general advisors everybody else has.

Plus, with my double major, I can do just about anything. Teaching; I'll be certified to teach birth to 21. Journalism, Marketing, Public Policy, Public Relations;which is what am aiming for. The scholarships are incredible too. I know people who have worked with Kraft, Wrangler, Land O Lakes, Caterpillar, Kamatsu, with legislators on state and national congress, with the FDA and much more through the same majors I am in and similar ag-related fields.

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: The academics feel a lot like high school, just with teachers who care a lot less. Some teachers have their preferences of teaching styles that in a way forces the students to unlearn everything they have been taught only to dump it all again for the next teacher. Especially in the English and Communications departments. MLA format vs APA format is a big issue. The teacher will spend a lot of time teaching the students one of the other because the teacher prefers it even though both are valid formats. And because the teachers spend so much time teaching their preferences on little things, they eat up class time and take away from real growth.

With the exception of Statistics, I felt as though my classes were simply review from what I had already learned in high school.
