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.

I am in the Interpreter Preparation Program at ICC and I love it! We are given a lot of opportunities to work together in class and build strong collaborative relationships with peers. The instructors really stress that being able to honestly evaluate your own work is a vital skill to have if you want to continue to improve, so we do a lot of self evaluation of our work, as well as peer and instructor evaluations. The homework assignments are things that I feel are actually helping prepare us for the real world. Our instructors try to bring in as many guest speakers as they can to expose us as many aspects of our field as they can. An internship is a mandatory part of the curriculum, so a student is guaranteed some real world experience. I have heard that many students are offered a job at the internship site after they graduate from the program, which is very encouraging. Overall, I am very pleased with the attitude of the instructors, their behavior towards the students and their expectations for the students.

The only decent factor about this institution is the price, but then again, you get what you pay for. Going here was a terrible decision on my part. It is basically like going to a high school where the professors don't care, you learn next to nothing, and normal people are few and far between. Bottom line: if you have the financial means to go to a four year university DO NOT COME HERE! Don't spend the next two years of what could be an awesome college experience in this depressing dump.
