City Colleges of Chicago - Malcolm X College Reviews

City Colleges of Chicago- Malcolm X, is a great college. The professors are understanding and eager to teach. The professors at Malcolm X makes sure that every student understands the material covered in class. The resources that are available at Malcolm X are useful from the library, to the tutoring center. The school is small, so your professor gets to know you and you build relationships with your professors, they are there for you. The only problem, which is very small which is that the resources in the school close early and isn't open on weekends whether it is the library, cafeteria, gym, etc.
For my first semester I had a good transition from high school to college. The only thing that stopped me from rating this 5 stars was the fact that I had issues with my advisor. When it came down to register for the spring semester I went for help and all I got was a lecture on how to do it myself online. There I was selecting my classess when I realized I had enrolled for different locations for each class! I tried emailing her like 4 times and even scheduled appointments but nothing. My english professor was the one who enrolled me in honors courses and the rest of my schedule.

I love everything about Malcolm X. They have various events going on to get the students involved and free tutoring. The only reason why I didn't rate this 5 out of 5 is because of my unfortunate experience with my advisor. When it was time to register I felt like she didn't really help me know how to choose my classes. Also, when I needed approval to take pre calculus, she didn't reply to any of my emails until a week later. I had to find someone else who had helped me register for all of my classes on time so that I could set up my payment plan and pay my first payment before it was too late.
