From its humble beginnings in a shopping mall, Heartland Community College has grown into a 2-year community college with three permanent central Illinois campuses offering degrees and certificates in 70 subjects. HCC also provides a chance for students to expand their horizons by sponsoring study abroad programs in eight countries. The college combines travel and volunteering through its Alternative Spring Break program where students provide aid to communities in other regions of the country.
The atmosphere of Heartland is great I feel like I can connect well with my teachers. The faculty and staff are very approachable if you need help with anything. The classes are smaller for a more intimate learning feel.
