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!
Review College of DuPage
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.
I enjoyed my time at the College of Dupage. In my opinion, it does everything that is expected from a community college. As someone who is pursuing a degree in mechanical engineering, I did not run into a problem of not finding a class that I need to take. From what I've seen, there is also a variety of other fields for which students can get a start at COD, including STEM, life sciences, humanities, and technical.
This college is situated in a neighborhood area of a small town. The campus looks really nice, and is a good place to walk around when getting from one class to another. However if the weather isn't so nice, most of the college is connected on the inside, so it is possible to get around without setting a foot outside.
There are many quiet spots for students to study like the library (pretty big, 2 floors) or sitting areas. They can even get a one on one session with a tutor (free of charge) to get help on homework or test preparation.
