City Colleges of Chicago - Malcolm X College Reviews

I absolutely love City Colleges of Chicago Malcolm X! A lot of people have this stigma of community college because it's considered "not real" college but I am here to prove people wrong. I completed a Phlebotomy program and I am currently in a Medical Assistant program, both programs are well organized, well structured and are ready to prepare you for the real world of going into the medical field. I am definitely grateful that I went to a community college verses a University because I am saving myself from higher debt than most people at my age. The only reason why I gave the school 4 out of 5 stars is that the school can do better at taking care of students when it comes to advising and financial aid needs but overall I love my college and I believe its a real college no matter what people say.

Malcolm X has been nothing excellent for me. My current program are full of supportive, well-educated, and committed individuals who strive to ensure my classmates and I receive the best education to become physical therapist assistants. Malcolm X provide a ton of resources for their students including a food pantry for students struggling financially to obtain groceries; the food is free. They also provide a wellness center where they keep all information confidential for students needing that shoulder to talk to about anything wellness. Student services and registration have been nothing but helpful when applying for the program, and helping with my finances. Can't forget the newly renovated building and the beautiful interior in each classrooms with all of its techological resources, making it an easy and comfortable environment to learn and study.
Everyone has been so helpful helping me enroll. Being an adult going back to school after almost 20 years was daunting at first, but the staff here made me feel so welcome and definitely made the process go a whole lot more smooth!
