The institution is very diverse in terms of the students as well as teachers. The school offers vast amount of resources from counselors who are always more than willing to help me find my course in life, to librarian assistants who help me find books and research articles. They also try to get students to expand their boundaries by trying to get us to take advantage of job fairs, student work positions, and even have cheap study abroad summer and semester programs! However, it is a community college so most of the students are not involved in the school and are more focused on driving to class and leaving right away because they prefer to work rather than spend time at clubs and organizations. Overall, the college spends its revenue to better equip students with the tools that will help us succeed in our classes as well as offer technical courses for those looking to build their way up their profession.

Overall, attending the College of DuPage was a pretty great experience. While there I met some great people. Many of which I could relate to in and outside of school. The professors were excellent there and helped get you through anything you needed. The school was very modernized and I would recommend it to anyone looking to go down the jr. college route. I couldn't be more satisfied with being there and would go there again!
This school is hit or miss. Every department, counselor, or class interaction is great or a total disaster. Once a counselor told me to drop a class because I did not need that particular class. Then the next time I was told I needed the class & lost $1,000 right there. Some teachers are great! They expect you to come to class & actually teach you what you need to know. Then after some hard work & study time put in they where always available via email or office hours. This worked great & an A was attainable based on the effort. Other teachers just give vague information or don't teach at all & tell you to just read the book & whatever you don't understand ask, but then never answered emails or kept changing office hours or never showed up.
