McHenry County College Reviews
Mchenry County College have me the opportunity to begin college at a more affordable price while being closer to home. It helped me transition into college life and living an independent life from my parents. It had many friendly staff, fun events and good professors that taught me so much. I wish the campus offered more extracurriculars!
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. :)
My instructors genuinely want you to succeed and will give you all the assistance you need. I was extraordinarily stressed about going back to school after 39 years. However, my stress was misplaced. Currently, I am simply struggling with the technology side of being a students understanding how to submit assignments via phone, email, or Google docs -- something my classmates do not struggle with.
