What Students Are Saying

3.56 Average Rating
it's definitely a small school (approx 800), but regardless of whatever college you are looking at, go visit!
Jacob from Peru, IL
Do not rule out a small school, they are a great place to learn!
Kaitlin from Garrett, IN
Like most colleges, classes fill up fast and not many people drop very many classes, so register early and make sure you know what you want to take.
Hilari from Eureka, IL
I would suggest taking a visit to Eureka while you look into schools. The tour guides are amazing people and lots of fun to listen to.
Timothy from Joliet, IL
Live on campus! You get to experience so much more that way.

Tips for Prospective Students: (1.) Don't be like me: I went to college for 4 years and ended up dropping-out. I put social activities ahead of homework & ended up running out of financial aid before I could complete my degree. I then had to go back to my hometown & get a real job meaning minimum wage. For 11 years. I am now dropping-back-in & WILL be finishing my degree this semester (finally!). I hope you can learn from my bad example & do a better job for yourself. (2.) My advice: If you are capable of getting an A or a B in a particular class, do it. Don't settle for the easy C. You never know when the next class will actually be hard for you & the best you can do won't be good enough to make the GPA requirements. That will put you in a tough spot when you have to re-take a particular class and won't be able to fit all your other classes into the same schedule. (3.) Don't feel bad if some things at college are easy for you and other things are hard for you. That's life. Just do your best on the things you can do well & become excellent when you can. (4.) You know how James Earl Jones stated If you build it, they will come? Well I have another adage for you: It is never too late to get it right in life. Never. I am living proof that if you don't give up, you will succeed.
