    Campus Safety

    The annual crime reports speak for themselves. Zero crime at this school.

    Clubs and Activities

    A fair amount of clubs and activities on campus, but they tend to remain behind the scenes and aren't very well known around campus.

    Great for these types of students

    Those interested in general education, nursing, diesel engineering may be happy with Spoon River College.

    Bang for the buck

    The teachers are all very helpful and willing to stay after class to offer extra help when needed. The small school size gives you a fair amount of one-on-one time with the instructors.

    What to do for fun

    Getting involved in campus clubs and the sports at Spoon River College will be what keeps you busy on campus. Other than the pool and ping pong tables, there isn't much else to do on campus.

    Food and Dining

    The Sandbar Cafe offers a full service breakfast and lunch daily at very student friendly prices.

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorm buildings on campus.

    Academic Rigor

    The instructors are all around a very experienced and friendly group of people. They make sure to make the most out of their lessons and you don't leave class without learning anything.

    Tips for prospective students

    It's great to get involved on campus with the different clubs and organizations at Spoon River College. It's worth the time invested, can look good on a resume, and can be a very rewarding personal experience.

    In three sentences

    Spoon River College not only offers a variety of courses at a low cost, but also a clean and safe learning environment for learning. The teachers and staff are very friendly and offer to help whenever they can. Due to the small enrollment, you get more one on one time with your instructors to get the most out of your classes and therefore, the most bang for your buck.
