What are the academics like at your school?


The academics at ECC are very diverse and have a lot of depth. So far my favorite class has definitely been botany, a class which ignited my interest in the world of plants and plant nutrition. My least favorite class so far has been General Chemistry I because, for whatever reason, the field and practice of chemistry is very challenging to me. I would say that most students at ECC value the education that they are getting and classes generally have a good deal of participation. The students are not terribly competitive at ECC, which is nice because there is an atmosphere of trust and fellowship between most students. My particular major is Environmental Law, and although ECC doesn't have a program for that directly, the school that I am planning to transfer to, NIU, does. I have spent a good deal of time with my botany professor and anthropology professor out of class and they are very unique people.
