Illinois Valley Community College Reviews

One reason I choose IVCC is because my mother went to IVCC and earned her Associate Degree before transferring to ISU to earn both a Bachelor Degree and Master's Degree in Education. I have worked very hard in school and I chose IVCC because I wasn't sure of what field in engineering I wanted to pursue. I met with a counselor and they were extremely helpful in planning my coursework so that all my classes at IVCC will transfer to the University of Illinois. Another reason I choose to go to IVCC is because I have been fortunate to work for men who have taken me under their wing and give me guidance about life and mistakes both they and their children have made. I had so many adults tell me about the debt their children have after finishing college. I wanted to receive a great education, have time to narrow down my field of study, and be financially responsible! Illinois Valley Community College has provided me the opportunity to do all three.
Review Illinois Valley Community College
The professors at this school are almost all amazing. I feel that the courses can be a little bit too easy and the teachers aren't challenging us enough sometimes. The class sizes vary from just a few kids to a room that is packed, which I hate. Some teachers have so many students they can't remember our names and I really don't like that. It makes me feel less personally connected. The classes that are strictly lecture are a very bad setup in my opinion. Not everyone can learn that way and I see a lot of students lose interest and go on their phones instead of listening. Professors need to switch it up sometimes!
I honestly love IVCC! It's a very welcoming place. I feel safe there and like everybody is cheering me on to succeed and do well and will do whatever they can to help me make that happen. I feel that the staff really care about us and that's a great feeling and it makes me want to do better and be better. One of the things I like the most is the diversity. In classes you will have people from all different places and anyone from 16 to 60! It's nice because it adds a little bit of something different to participation in class and lectures. IVCC helped me to get my GED and then move on to college courses and become an honors student and I appreciate it so much. Couldn't have done it without the awesome professors! I would choose this college again in a heartbeat. Heck, if I could stay here all the way to my masters degree I would!
