I have mostly enjoyed my school experiences at ICC. Most of my professors have been good for my educational goals. I have been supported by my adviser when I have struggled with classes or program direction, including changing my program when it was obvious I was not succeeding. The campus facility is updated and conducive to my educational needs. My fellow students have been good to work with. The bookstore is helpful with the supplies, books and resources I need. Parking is easy to work with and free which is helpful. Overall I have really appreciated my schooling at ICC.

I believe that ICC is a very average community college due to the professors being somewhat average. Some teachers go above and beyond while others lag behind. The facility is very nice for a community college. They have many areas where you can sit and study, they also have many places to eat!
I love this college, especially the Ag programs. The professors are there to help you and they care that you learn what they are teaching and they help you succeed in their classrooms. They teach you stuff that you actually need to know. I haven't spent much time in the academic side of the campus but from the classes that I have been in, it's also great and is they same as the Agriculture side of things when it comes to the Professors. ICC is a great college and I am Proud I chose this college instead of anywhere else.
