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!
Review Illinois Central College
Illinois Central College is abundant with resources for success. The campus is teeming with student tutors and labs for supplemental help in every subject. The only way to fail a class here is to completely avoid utilizing the on-site and online services that are available every day. Some of the best teachers that I've met in my life teach here, and I've gotten help from my first year English teacher on scholarship applications and cover letters alike.
Tuition costs are comparably forgiving, but if you want to eat on campus, you're you're in for quite a bill- as is the case at any college. On-campus jobs are in high demand, so don't expect to land a position unless you're especially qualified or on the ball about applications. Don't let that discourage you, because ICC is just a short bus ride away from three different strip malls that are always looking for part time workers.
i would compare ICC to the shallow end of the pool. Rather than going straight to a four year university and getting thrown in the deep end with no floaties, ICC was a great school to slowly dip your toes in and exsperienced college life in less extremes. Don't get me wrong my classes were defiantly challenging but I felt more comfortable than I would have being in a far of university not knowing anyone. It's a great school to get started in for sure!
