Every counselor is extremely helpful and helps in many ways. Every professor that I've had was not only very nice, but genuinely cared and did everything to make not only me but other students successful. Being able to have a good relationship with the teachers made each class more enjoyable because I was able to get thorough explanation if I wasn't able to understand something right away. While attending IVCC, I felt like I was able to figure out what I truly wanted to do for a career and whenever I needed help, there was always someone there to help guide me in the right direction.

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.
