    Very cheap, especially in-district and will tailor your classes to what you hope to major in one day. Also, the classes correlate with any public colleges in Illinois so majority of the classes you take will transfer.

    I have met some extremely great people here, especially my math instructor Mrs. Korla who always encourages her students to try their hardest. She also has a great accent because she came here from India!

    Compared to most other schools, McHenry County College is cheap, unless you're an out-of district student. The books are expensive and there are some classes that you really wish were free.
