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!
Review Illinois Valley Community College
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!
IVCC is a wonderful community college. It is located perfectly between all of the surrounding communities. It really brings all these people within the nearest cities and counties together, and I love that. It feels a part of home. Everything you need to succeed is there; you just have to have initiative. The professors won't hold your hand, but they will help you understand your coursework and allow you to be self-sufficient for the following material. The counselers have seen and experienced all different kinds of career paths, and their process to get you on the right track is incredibly streamline. The tuition is affordable for many, and if it isn't, well, that's when you start pulling at straws and seeking out financial assistance to move yourself forward. Our college is cost-effective, supportive, and practical for commuting. Again, IVCC is a fantastic establishment.
