    ECC is really dedicated to making sure that their students exceed in what they want to pursue. The professors are really devoted to their students' success, and will help whenever you need it. The campus is just as nice as the professors/faculty.

    So far I have enjoyed my experience at ECC. I previously got an AS degree at McHenry Community College, and comparatively ECC is much more preferable. They offer more services and programs.

    It's a good place to save money and take your pre-requisite classes. It's also good if you are interested in a certificate program like cooking or auto mechanics. It's kind of a hit and miss on the teachers. Some are good some are not.

    A friendly atmosphere which is convenient. It is a nice transition if you do not want to go straight to a four year university. Good quality education.

    I love this school. I think a lot of people don't see it as an option because it is a community college, but the school is very modernized and a great option. The classes are educational and most of the teachers are very good at their jobs!

    Elgin Community College is not just a college for underprivileged students or high school students who didn't do well enough to get into the school of their choice. ECC is challenging and get you ready to transfer or even a program putting you on the work place once you graduate there. Elgin Community college is affordable and provides you with excellent teachers and programs to make sure you succeed.
