East Central College Reviews

The class sizes are great because it is not like a lecture hall with 100 students. Each class has between 15-35 students and that's great because it gives the teacher room to talk to their students more. The class styles are unique because each teacher has a different way of teaching. I love that for a community college, they have exactly what classes I need to pursue my carrier. Overall, this school is fit for anyone!
Review East Central College
I was reluctant to take online courses, as I had never done so before. I have found that every online course I have taken has been a great choice. I can take classes online that would otherwise require me to drive 2 hours both ways to attend at another campus and this allows working with my schedule in a more convenient way for me. The instructors are always approachable and willing to help. The course loads tend to be a little more in depth than the in class, but that makes sense because you are not in a classroom. The peer-to-peer interaction and instructor-to-student interaction are a great way to further the online education, as well. Registration for the classes I have taken, so far, have been very easy and convenient for my hectic schedule.
Every week, there is always an employer on campus recruiting or a four-year university recruiting. There is a work study program which is fantastic and each degree is credited through Missouri!
