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 ICC, they have some really amazing professors that actually love teaching and helping their students succeed. However, I have personally ran into some issues involving a few bad professors and advisors. A few professors I had didn’t work with you or answer your questions that were necessary to understand the material being taught. Another is an advisor I had who did not care about your success until you started slipping. They overwhelmed multiple student’s schedules just to get them through as fast as he could.
I love Illinois Central College! I drive two hours both ways to attend, and this school is well worth the drive. It is very clean and friendly. Easy to navigate around, and the staff is extremely friendly. The cafeteria is huge with many side rooms for quiet and private conversations. The food selection is wide and there is always a variety! The library is absolutely beautiful with many separate rooms for group activities and studying, as well as rooms with mini computer labs! I give this college five stars and 2 thumbs up!
