Indian River State College is a college full of opportunities. I love that there is a variety of options for each and every student attending college there and that they won’t be ignored when they are lost or confused during their college experience. One thing I would like to see change is that sometimes it is not easy to get in contact with someone at a local IRSC campus, so I would like that to change!

I began at Indian River State as a high schooler through the dual enrollment program. This allowed me to begin my associates degree for free. There are four campuses and I have attended three of them. All campuses are diverse. Each class is filled with people of different races, ages, genders, and styles. At Indian river, the class sizes are small. This allows students to get a more hands-on experience. Professors at this college are passionate about what they teach. If you want to learn more or have any questions about class material, grades, or extra help, they provide their emails, phone numbers, and office hours. When you need to reach an advisor about a problem, student have the option to email, book phone or in-person appointments, or walk-in. Indian River is great about getting their students involved. Student mentors are always hosting special events to talk about issues, socialize, or even have fun. Overall, my experience at I.R.S.C. has been nothing but warm and inviting.
I have only ever stepped foot onto 2 college campuses (3 if you count the irsc's campuses to be separate and not part of a whole). I have visited not only the Pruitt Campus but the Main Campus several times for classes, functions and whatnot. I would like to say that I am a proud student of Indian River State College. Their campuses are gorgeous, professors are kind an professional, and they are always buzzing with student life and resources. The only concern I have is their online enrollment and course selection process. There used to be a system called MyIRSC which was simple, easy to use, and efficient. However recently there has been a major change to a new system called WorkDay which has thrown many curve balls at not only the students, but the faculty aswell due to it being very different. I have no doubt that it will be worked through but this change has been a small damper on the college experience.
