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.
A great, small school. IVCC is currently helping me complete my Gen Ed’s so I can later move onto a university. Since my time at IVCC, I haven’t had one teacher who has failed to meet my standards. Excellent staff, and students. I could go on and on about all the great aspects of IVCC! However, IVCC is deducted a star because of the way-finding plan, as the numbers of the classrooms are out of order. This makes it a bit harder for students and even staff to find their way around campus.
I love everything about IVCC. It is the best move you can make financially. The cost of the education you receive may be cheap, but the quality of the education you receive is of the highest standard. The instructors go above and beyond to help with anything you are struggling with and the counselors are next level. If you have the chance to experience this hidden gem, take it, you won't regret it!
