Rend Lake College Reviews
I am currently enrolled in Automotive Technologies. The instructors are great! They're excellent in classroom lecture and in the lab with hands-on training. I've learned a great deal and they have prepared me to transfer to a University.
Rend Lake College has a very small campus that is easy to navigate. It is filled with friendly staff and great professors. The classes are generally cheap, along with textbooks. I would recommend Rend Lake College to any student, especially nursing majors. They have one of the best programs for nursing students in Illinois.
I liked the size of the college and the ratio of students to teacher. I also like the campus itself. It is beautiful, the lake is very close to campus, and camp sites are close for commuters who live a ways off campus. I really enjoyed my chemistry class with professor Paul Sandrock, my speech class, and agriculture classes. I would like to see a change in academic advisors. The best advisor is Heather Bauersachs at the Pinckneyville campus. The advisors on campus need more education about the degree tracks and what is best for transfer students.
