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 am extremely impressed with College of DuPage. After returning to school after a break, this was the best expereince I've had so far.
Classes are affordable to the point that I was able to pay out of pocket (granted only a couple classes at a time due to my time limitations).
I have taken both on campus and online classes. I preferred on campus and felt I received a little more out of those than the online. However the online classes offered flexibility in time and still offered a challenging environment that required discussions as well.
One of my favorite things about College of Dupage was that many of my professors were professionals within the field of study, this was a part time position for them. Their real life experience often complimented and supplimented the textbooks.
