Kishwaukee College Reviews
Kishwaukee is an excellent school for students looking to complete their general education, transfer, become a teacher, or become a nurse. It's affordable and cheaper than it's neighbor NIU for the same classes. There are some excellent teachers. Just make sure you do your research on your professor's teaching style and agenda before you take a class.
I honestly loved Kishwaukee College! I would definitely recommend this school to anyone who enjoys smaller classes and working closely with professors. Not only were you able to work closely with with your professors, you were also able to work closely with your classmates! I loved the staff and all they have done for me to make it possible for me to succeed and graduate!
Kishwaukee College has been so helpful for me this year. My first year here was amazing and every week was always new. The professors are fantastic and really want to teach their students as much as we want to learn. The classes are so broad and lots of programs are advertised monthly so absolutely nobody can miss out. We have events and clubs and the community joins together which makes attending Kishwaukee College way more enthusiastic. Go Cougars!
