I had a great experience at McHenry County college! After my high school completion, I had no idea what I wanted to study. Since I did not have the financial means to go to a 4-year university after graduation, I decided to attend my community college. McHenry County College(MCC) was able to help my personal and educational growth. The majority of the faculty wants the students to strive in their educational goals. I was presented with many opportunities at MCC. I worked on campus and did a lot of volunteer work through the school. Additionally, the school helped me create a vision of who I wanted to become. I saved money taking general requirements before deciding where I wanted to transfer to complete my Bachelor's degree. I'm happy with the decision I made. :)
Review McHenry County College
I was at McHenry County college for two years. The professors at community colleges are exactly the same you would find at a four year, no more or less compotent. The tuition was under $2,000 for me to take a full course load and buy all my books. I highly suggest anyone who is looking to complete a four year degree to first start off at MCC to save yourself $30,000 on gen eds!
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.
