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.

Rarely are there activities for us. When there are student activities, staff are taking advantage. Also, this college loves to eat. When i visit the few events they have, they offer food and guard it like its the last. Then i witness staff taking loads out somewhere and report food is gone. Did i mention that there student services area is setup like a fortress. When i attempted to see my dean i had to have a person call who only reported the person was unavailable in two occasions. The lady looked like i was asking her too do surgery when i stopped by. I love the fact that i can visit various floors to study and charge my laptop. Student services is a joke. No activities for students like it once was. They need new leaders.
I wish I could do 3 and a half stars. The problem with a "two year" college is that their programs usually take longer than two years. The only time two years truly apply is when you go year around. The staff so far have been very helpful, although I find some of the procedures in place to be a little confusing. i.e. allowing programs to be changed mid semester. I can understand if it's changed in between semesters, but to totally change it in the middle of the semester and you find that the class you are currently taking will not be needed for a particular certificate that you are trying to earn is pretty daunting. Then to be asked to take a full load of classes, making it difficult to work an outside job is also a bit off putting. The plus side is the cost of the programs.
