college of dupage has been the most amazing experience and has opened so many more doors for me than i ever thought possible from a community college. the tuition is affordable and 100% of the classes are taught by knowledgeable professors with small class sizes. don't underestimate the power of this institute; not only does it ensure that about 95% of your classes are transferable, it is a great place to be!
