Elgin Community College Reviews
I’m currently enrolled at Ecc, it is my second year there. So far my experience at Ecc has been great, the atmosphere is calming and but busy in a way that there is just a lot of students. I’m working towards my Associates in Arts. The teachers and staff are very friendly and helpful. Class sizes are roughly about 25 students which makes it easier to ask questions during lecture, the teachers are willing to work with you if you need the extra help. It’s also great to start off at a community college to save money!
After a 5yr break from school, going back was a little scary. Thanks to the ECC staff everything went well and smooth. For every step that was required to get started, someone was there to lead, advise and help out. In a matter of time and dedication I was able to start a new career! I wouldn't change anything about ECC. Campus is alw always open and if help is required anyone will be able to assist.
This is my second semester at ECC. The campus appears to have been fully renovated. Building A is the healthcare professions building, and there are all-new labs and classrooms. I have been impressed with the quality of teaching among my instructors, and thus far all have seemed interested in seeing their students succeed. There are free tutoring centers if you need help with your classes. There's a variety of extracurricular activities too, if you are interested in those. ECC offers excellent value for the money.
