It's the perfect school for anyone who's not quite ready to take on the big 4-year university setting or are going back to school after some time. I love the Student Life offices, there's always something new going on each day! I really enjoyed my professors, they came to class everyday with a clear and new objective of teaching.
I am a first generation student and the application process was a little more difficult for me than most. There are people in every office who want to help you. McHenry County College allowed for me to have a personalized education. My academic achievement was valued on an individual level. They have amazing Honors Societies. I personally am a member of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society and Psi Beta National Honors Society. At the beginning, I didn't know much about scholarships or FAFSA but after attending MCC I am more familiar with the process. They have a lot of scholarship opportunities available specifically to MCC students every semester.
Some professors are good, others are bad. It's really hit and miss. I really wish they would change around the professors that have bad track reccords; they are not helping students! But the good professors are there as well, so I think in general, the school is great.
