There is nothing I would change with Spoon River College. This is an excellent two year college. Advisors are so helpful with making sure you have the right classes for not only graduation, but for transferring schools. The staff is also very helpful with any billing or financial porblems!

Spoon River College is a great school to attend when you are not quite sure on what you want to do in life. The tuition is affordable for young adults who are still thinking about their life. I have had a good time at Spoon River College so far. The professors are kind and helpful and the environment their classes have helps the students to feel comfortable. The only thing I would want to see change is the fact that the bookstore there feels as though it is trying to scam me. It costs so much for a sheet of paper that I will only use once in my life. I would appreciate it if everything there didn't cost an arm and a leg, but I guess that is how colleges are.
Spoon River College was very affordable and offered a good education for the price paid. During online courses however professors seem to be more distant and do not engage as well with the students. Often the classes follow the same schedule and set up making the classes slightly less interesting and diverse. Either way, this school does offer a great range of classes at an affordable price and makes an environment in which it is easy to not only learn, but excel in doing so.
