    I certainly enjoyed my time at Moraine Valley as it has molded me into the student I am today. The environment is very clean, the buildings offer great heating and ac systems, it is very safe, and offers a nice variety of activities and clubs to keep students engaged and out of trouble. Although the college experience will not be attained because the lack of dorms I believe this experience also contributes to the high number of dropouts and students put on probation because they are simply too young to be responsible. Moraine Valley is a great place to learn and grow as a student and a person.

    The campus is small, but you meet with a wide variety of people. It is a really nice place to start your college journey. People are friendly and the atmosphere is great! Just don't steal any one's parking slot!

    I really do enjoy being here, the cool thing about the classes is that they are so small, but they literally include every demographic you could possibly think of. In my business stats class I had middle aged men and women pursuing their master's, yet I also had a high school senior earning AP credit. There's variation in every class, you really never know who you are going to meet.

    I love the campus, the teachers, the students, and everything about the school. Being a part-time student and part-time worker would have been impossible at a University, but here I can go to school and still be able to keep my job and support myself.

    It's a clean, safe environment, but because everyone commutes it's obviously missing that college experience of dorming and close knit feeling. Regardless, everyone's friendly and in the same situation as you, so you feel completely at ease. The class schedules are so flexible, I take all of my classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8am-3pm. I love those 4 day weekends!
