4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Great opportunities to make "connections" with those already in my field

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The professors really don't care. There have been a few great ones but most just seem like they couldn't get a job at a real university and landed in the lap of ICC. On the plus side, they really don't care so some classes are extremely easy.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There really isn't an alumni network and there are definitely not employers recruiting on campus. You're pretty much on your own.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Many class sections are offered which is nice, but if you want to tailor your schedule you're going to have to do it yourself. The counselors will have you wasting your time with classes everyday of the week when a MWF or T/TR schedule is easily attainable. My advice would be to find out what prerequisites are required for your major at a four year college and get on e-services and make your own schedule.

5 College Sophomore

Online Courses: The best part about online classes was not having to physically be at ICC. Seriously, any opportunity to avoid being there is worth taking. I do have to give the college credit for the number of classes they offer online. There are many options that make tailoring your schedule pretty easy. Just don't expect to learn too much.

1 College Sophomore

Career Services: Unless you're going into nursing and being set up with the OSF program, you wont get much help finding job prospects from ICC.

1 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: There is very little concentration on majors. Pretty much everyone is forced into taking Gen Eds.

1 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: 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.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: All my teachers have been very accessible and truly interested in helping me be the best possible student.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My adviser has told me that the local hospitals really like the ICC nurses because they are so well trained.

5 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: I chose ICC because I can work and take a variety of courses when I have the time for them. I also know that the nursing program is unique because I will be assigned to a hospital and I will have to arrange my life to their schedule. This is a minor adjustment for one year of my life and will be so worth the effort.

3 College Freshman

Online Courses: I have taken only one course-English-online. I thought it was supposed to be all on line but the professor wanted to meed with us in her office each week during her office hours. It was a bit of a problem to make it there on time.

3 College Freshman

Career Services: The help from the career center is more for choosing a career. The dental field is now so over saturated that dentists no longer need to advertise for help. I am hopeful that I will be placed in a nursing career from the internships that are available during my educational process.

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Admittance to the health science programs is based on a points system. This helps the student manage their course load by taking their advanced sciences and humanities prior to being enrolled in the nursing program. Extra points are awarded to students who work in a health field (CNA) environment assuring this is the field the student wants to invest their time with. This allows the student to focus on building a solid base of education before beginning the rigors of the nursing program and helping the student to graduate with confidence.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: ICC is an affordable education employing many doctoral professors. Students can grow and change their major or just take courses that interest them as they decide on a course for their life. Almost all courses are transferable to any four year institution, even years from now. All the education gained at ICC is applicable to their chosen career path and has been the best decision I have made so far.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: The online platform at Illinois Central College is a totally different experience than the classroom. I have found that some of the courses have been extremely difficult due to the level of interaction the instructor required from his/her students. It was helpful to have all of the assignments, reminders, and grades all in one place.

3 College Junior

Career Services: I don't think they promote post-grad programs as much as most other schools, but they are a community college, so it's not as important

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The classroom experience has been very beneficial for my growth as a student. The class size is small enough for the teachers to invest personally with students when needed and allows for students to interact casually.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The student career prospects on my school's campus aren't very proactive. There isn't a lot of interaction with students and recruits.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: The programs at Illinois Central College are geared to teach content that is applicable to the real world and prepares its students appropriately for transferring to 4 year universities.
