One of my favorite colleges! My experience here was great. My professors were kind and showed their passion through teaching. At ECC you will find diversity in the students and an open campus. Its a great transition for seniors that just graduated high school. Also there are many different classes and clubs for students that are unsure of their major. ECC is known for helping students along the way to success I know from personal experience that you will never feel lost.
Elgin Community College was the college that kick started my education after high school. They were close to home which is probably the best but had much more to offer. The classes were very flexible with my work schedule. On top of all that, the professors that I had were remarkable!
What makes ECC unique is the clubs, they also have something going on in the student area. Especially, with every semester! Free food, pens, planner, win cool stuff. We have different clubs, that do different things, such as shows for little kids or for adults.
