Kishwaukee College Reviews
So far Kishwaukee College has been a decent experience. Academics are decent but not very wide-ranging. The class sizes are never overwhelmingly large and the campus is decently navigable. Kishwaukee provides nice services like free tutoring, disability services, and a good range of teachers, clubs, and academic opportunities. However, school spirit isn't very present and the atmosphere isn't socially conductive. You'll make friends in class more than anywhere else. Overall, not a bad school.
At Kishwaukee College, I overall have had a great experience. There have been numerous opportunities to serve others and develop skills to make me a better person. I was able to have the environment that would encourage success and hard work. Kishwaukee gave me work opportunities, program opportunities and great resources to be the best that I can be. It helped me become the person who I want to be.
I am proud to be attending Kishwaukee College. The professors are very kind and helpful. I feel safe going to this school. You can't beat the cost! I feel extremely prepared for my career.
