It's a very bright environment, the people are very relaxed, and the teachers are mostly good. There’s a building for every specific major, the arts building, culinary arts, physical education, health and sciences, etc. The buildings are all connected through tunnels one way or another which is very convenient when the weather is not cooperative. They have many resources, from the study rooms in the library to the gym. I love the arts building, it is such a bright environment and so colorful. Also, Einstein bagels in that building is very good. Overall, I rate the college a 10/10.

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.
This college was unbelievably helpful throughout the entire process of obtaining my associates degree. The classes prepared me for further education, for the majority the teachers were enthusiastic, available, and helpful, and the campus was always clean. They offer a plethora of student services from counseling, tutoring, and extracurricular's. College of Dupage prepared me for life beyond community college and even helped me in transferring to another school. The counseling department set me up and told me exactly what classes I needed in order to get where I wanted to and from dealing with other schools, I can tell you that not all schools are this helpful.
