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!
Review Your College
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.
Sad, sad school not at all about education. Absolutely 100% about state funded money ONLY. Hell....... I had teachers that never even showed up to class, that's right teachers that forgot they had a class, students had to go find the teacher and remind them they had a class. Students are held to what this school calls a academic standard. However, teachers aren't held to anything, I often wondered what were the requirements for working here 'breathing?' You get what you pay for! Save yourself much heartache, drama and grief by finding another school!!
