Am learning a lot
ECC has such a great variety of classes, there's pretty much something for everyone. In my experience, the teachers are easily contacted, and very knowledgeable about their subjects.
Am enjoying being here
I love being able to hang out in a lounge between classes, knowing I will probably see someone I know there. The classrooms and offices are easy to find too.
Bang for the buck
I will have completed all my general education by May 2011, and I've saved thousands of dollars by attending ECC. The quality of the classes are great as well, I feel I have gotten my money's worth.
Tips for prospective students
If you are planning to transfer after attending ECC, make sure that your credits will transfer where you want them to. Apply for scholarships! It can't hurt, and any little bit helps. Don't overload yourself the first semester, college courses can take a bit of getting used to, even if you did well in high school. And most of all, make sure the school is a good fit for you and will provide you with what you need from it.
Great for these types of students
First-time college students looking to complete their gen eds, people looking to return to college, the night classes are great for people who work during the day and need to take a class for their job. There are so many options that nearly anyone could find what they're looking for.

Elgin Community College has a great student to teacher ratio and the quality of the education is high. Many of the professors are trained professionals in their areas of study.
Am enjoying being here
The college has more than 40 active clubs and organizations on the campus. With all the constant activities going on, there is never a boring day and you will never want to leave!
Bang for the buck
ECC offers quality education for a very reasonable price. I was a full time student and was able to pay for all my classes as well as books with under $4000.
Tips for prospective students
I would advise you to attend a community college first, even though you may want to move on to a four-year institution. It will prepare you for a smoother transition and you will save so much money on your general education classes.
Great for these types of students
Elgin Community College is great for students who have not yet decided what they want to major in. The college offers a wide array of classes to explore and many outside-of-the-classroom opportunities. You will always save a lot of money!
