I loved my experience at Indian River State College. My favorite part would be the tremendous support I received from the Student Support Services program. All the advisers there truly helped me with tutoring and even college counseling. Thanks to them I made the decision to transfer to the University of Central Florida, where I graduated in 2014 with my Bachelor's in Hospitality Management. I intend to return for a Bachelor's in Accounting at Indian River State College this Summer 2017. I would recommend this college to everyone looking for a college who cares about how well you do and what you to succeed.
Review Indian River State College
IRSC is an amazing college with fantastic teachers. As a dual-enrollment student, they do not treat me differently than any other student. The classes are amazing and informational. The environment is friendly and inviting. This college is a great choice!
IRSC is the best state college in the country, especially when it comes to technology. Since it is just a state college, employers would rather see UF, MIT, Stanford, or other universities, since the academics might be better. The tuition is cheap, so you'll get good bang for your buck. Every college has both good and bad professors, but the professors at IRSC seem to be very good in general. Be sure to use RateMyProfessor when picking classes. Most classes are at the main campus, but there are also many classes at the 4 branch campuses. IRSC's main mission is Student Success, and there are many resources available. Despite the main campus being in Ft. Pierce, crime on campus is very low.
