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.

The professors are phenomenal and really care about the subjects that they teach. It is an excellent value. Courses are available in a wide variety of degree and certificate programs. Classes are offered at many times of the day, from early morning to late night. Online and weekend classes also offer flexible opportunities.
The management of the college is not great. The financial aid office and the cashiers' office are both terrible disasters. They are not well managed and have a lot of communication issues.
It is very difficult to find parking on campus during the peak class times (mid-day on week days.)
The professors at the College of DuPage are very well informed and qualified. Overall, most of my professors were willing to go above and beyond for their students. I really enjoyed the small classroom setting as well-- this allowed for professors to focus in on their students. I have honestly loved my classroom experience in the science departments, and feel that I now have a strong background in my intended major. I am transferring to the University of Illinois for their Molecular and Cellular Biology program, and I feel that the College of DuPage has done an excellent job at preparing me for my future endeavors.
