    Am enjoying being here

    Itasca Community College is a good place to start. I enjoy Itasca Community College because it is a small and friendly campus. Teachers and students are friendly. It is in a fairly small town, but has stores so you can get your midnight study snacks.

    It is a good college. Teachers at Itasca Community College are friendly, helpful, and willing to answer questions inside and outside of class. Class sizes are small and most classes are interactive. I am learning new things and getting by generals done.

    Outdoorsmen (and women!) if you like the 'up north' feeling its definitely worth checking out!

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    We have a farm set to the north side of our campus!

    Bang for the buck

    Its not ridiculously overpriced, and you meet so many great people and wonderful teachers.

    What to do for fun

    Hiking, fishing, sports, swimming, cliff jumping, and more. As long as you have some sort of will to do something, you'll have no problem finding things to do around the campus, and Grand Rapids.

    Food and Dining

    The dining halls lunches at ten times better than the high school cooked lunches.

    Academic Rigor

    If you put the effort in, you'll do well.

    Tips for prospective students

    Focus on your studies, and don't give in to the temptation of procrastination.

    In three sentences

    I would rate Itasca at a 8/10. It's for the outdoorsey kind, set far enough away from big cities to enjoy the simpler life. It has everything you need, without the hassle of a large scale university.

    Campus Safety

    I've never had any problems feeling safe at ICC, but campus security is always there if you don't feel safe.

    Great for these types of students

    Forestry, engineering or nursing students have the best options for classes here, though the AA program is good as well. If you don't like small towns or rural areas, or don't enjoy hunting or snowmobiling, you won't have much to do.

    What to do for fun

    On campus there are a number of clubs, there are always computer labs, and there are several student events throughout the year. There's a bowling alley nearby, too, and the movie theater in town is great.

    Food and Dining

    The food can be really nice, and there are some great deals. It's not the best food you've ever had, but it's certainly not the worst.

    Dorm Life

    I don't live in the dorms, but I've heard good and bad stories about them.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes, in my experience, aren't extremely hard, but you can't just expect to slip through and get a decent grade if you don't put in any work.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be aware that ICC is pretty small, and most of the students have a pretty good idea of what the best classes to take are and which teachers are best. Don't be afraid to talk to other students and ask about their favorite hangouts or the best deals here.

    In three sentences

    Itasca Community College is small but welcoming. There are clubs and student activities, and you never have to go outside to get to your classroom if the weather is bad because all of the buildings are connected by tunnels. If you need a great place to start your college education, ICC is for you.

    What to do for fun

    Grand Rapids is a great area if you are big into hunting and fishing. Being in Minnesotas wilderness there is plenty of public land to walk trails and go hunting. There is also a plethora of lakes for endless fishing opportunities. In town, there is a movie theater and a bowling alley. It is a fairly small town but still has stuff to do to stay occupied.

    Food and Dining

    The food is average. Can be a bit pricey and the meal card plan is a bit much for someone to spend and not have carry over if it is not all spent.

    Dorm Life

    I never had the experience to live in the dorms. However, from what i have seen and heard, the dorms are a great starting point. They are very roomy and allow for a great college experience.

    Academic Rigor

    Your knowledge will definitely be tested within the engineering department. All the professors are very smart and really know how to get the most out of the students. The multiple projects also test the student ability to manage time outside of class. Many things stack up on one another and it takes a lot to keep up in the classroom while getting everything done on time.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are looking for a small, inexpensive college to get a start on your future than ICC is the place to go especially if you are an engineering major. ICC's project based learning approach to engineering is above all else and is a great starting point. You will gain all knowledge needed to make the next steps after transferring out of ICC

    In three sentences

    Itasca Community College really is the best place to start as made clear by their slogan. Small class sizes allows for exceptional student to professor experiences. Lastly, there are many great opportunitiesIf that fit anyone's desires
