4 College Junior

2 College Junior

Overall Experience: There is not a lot of it advertised

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: General education classes are a workload

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Several opportunities to get involved, affordable

3 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: There are a wide variety of class schedules. However, many of these will overlap, making some course selection difficult.

I try to keep all of my classes on weekdays, and avoid early morning classes. This can lead to class overlaps, but it depends on the selected courses.

4 College Freshman

Career Services: The career center is always the first stop for students with an undecided major, as the faculty is always willing to assist you and help make decisions about the kind of classes you'll want to take.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: One of the greatest aspects of the Kishwaukee College classes are the professors. They are extremely helpful and kind to the students, and practice an overall expression of respect.

The student's individual encounters with students will vary, as the professors tend to reflect the outlook of the individual student. If you are a student who is proactive and curious, you will find that the professors will be more willing to assist you with your individual needs. If you show respect and a general appreciation toward them, they will do the same. Overall, the rule of thumb is to be more than another figure within the classroom. The more you positively stand out toward your teacher, the better.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The value of your degree will vary, depending on what you plan to do with it and if you plan to transfer to a four year institution. The general sought-out degree at Kish is an associates, which can be used as a platform when entering a four year college. Many students find their direction through the student resources and career centers, where a councilor is always more than happy to assist.

The campus employment options are limited in number. There are however a great deal of local business opportunities. Many advertisements can be found outside the student resources center. Also, Kish hosts many local business representatives during the year, who are always on the look out for college student applicants.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Kishwaukee College is the perfect starter point for students new to the college experience. The staff is kind and ready to assist new comers the moment you enter, and student resources are various and abundant.

The professors and incredibly helpful to students who show initiative and genuine curiosity. They will always go out of their way to assist you, as long as you show respect and motivation for learning.

The courses are both challenging and engaging, and student participation is a concept that is commonly practiced both inside and outside of class. Those who attend will find the joy behind the subject and course material, as the teachers all show a common interest within their field.

The general atmosphere is one of respect and achievement. It is well worth your time to apply here, and if given a chance to start over, I would definitely choose Kishwaukee.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The falculty in this school are excellent and provide any help of understanding the material. The school is clean and well built; also has a comfy cafeteria with a various amount of food selection. Also comes with a little coffee place which helps get students up and ready for the school day.

Overall Experience: Kishwaukee College has too much of a high school feel. It's very small however, and the majority of teachers are very helpful and very nice.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I wish i would have gone to a four year university to start off my eduation. As a fresh out of highschool senior, my experience at a community college has not been regretable. I absolutely love it and i dont think i made a mistake coming to kishwaukee college in malta illinois. The class size is the same as highschool which makes it helpful. The insructors will give you their full attention if you ask for help which is amazing. They are humorous and down to earthand if you have any questions they will try their best to give you the best answer possible.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: In all my classes, each teacher tries to lighten of the class by cracking jokes. By them doing this it helps me relax so I can learn better. The class sizes are the perfect size. I'm able to connect with my professors on a level that I would not be able to if I was a some big university.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: It's a great school. Classes are always straight forward and teachers are always willing to help.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: the staff seems very nice and professional and organized and i appreciate that. i haven't started here yet but i have visited and handled business at the school several times now & i think it will be a good fit for me considering my circumstances and time frame. i am really excited to be getting back in school and this school fits my budget with good curriculum.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's a community college. Their website isn't very user friendly and the people who work their are a bit disinterested in their jobs but I wouldn't expect much else.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: My school's frustrations are found in the internet process. It is too slow and cannot handle the small student body that we have. I have not had much help as far as getting answers to my college experience questions. Getting into classes that I need is difficult sometimes. On the other hand, the short drive from my house and the tuition that is cheaper than other schools is helpful in my circumstance.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I think that I have learned a lot and managed to save some money by not going far away to school. If I had the resources, I would go and travel to my dream school. Given my limited income, I chose to stay close. The school has been rewarding in some ways however.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My school has all different types of courses, professors and class sizes.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: Online classes are convenient because I can do homework while at work. However, it sometimes leads to frustration and some teachers can be hard to reach when you need them. The workloads that I have taken have been feasible and I learned some things from my class.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: My school's student body is very diverse. We have students from local areas as well as students from far away that are here on a athletic scholarship.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: My school takes a while to process financial aid and then when they do, they mail a list of more things that they need. It is frustrating and time consuming. Especially for those who know they do not qualify anyways. My parents are divorced but both are remarried. Each household makes too much for me to qualify for financial aid. However, none of their money goes to my schooling. I receive room and board from my parents, but I am struggling to put myself through school.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: One of the most frustrating things about my school is the registration process. They open it online to all students at once and so everyone logs in at once. The schools system cannot handle everyone at once, therefore many people do not get classes that they want or even need. The faculty, for the most part, is nice and helpful. The classes all vary in workload and curriculum depending on the instructor. I think my school offers a lot overall.
