I love Illinois Central College because it is a nice small school that has a lot to offer it's students when it comes to academics and fun things to do as well.

Kristyn - 05/06/2021

Really good school, inexpensive for those that live in the area or state. Good academics, although the occasional crazy professor can happen. The tutoring and supplemental instruction is one of the best parts of the college because they are free, the staff is knowledgable, professional, and really helpful for some of the hardest courses on campus.

Very good school for its price. Most classes transfer over to other schools. The cheapest and smartest option in the area. The sports could be better. Library and study rooms are amazing. Funds are used well in this school. Decent food, it could be better.

    The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Illinois Central College is 100%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    My adjustment to college was harsh at first, and it was mainly because of my underdeveloped time management skills. If I could talk to myself as a high school senior, I would coach myself through how to wisely budget my time between my schoolwork, my family, my job, and my future planning. I would also advise myself that not everyone in college thinks the same way I do. One adjustment I had to make to how I viewed my peers was that every single person on campus has a different worldview. I would tell myself that if I respect everyone for their worldview, I will receive respect in return. In terms of my schoolwork, I would tell myself that since I have already made a financial investment in my education, I should invest my best efforts in my work, and I will get out of a class what I put into it. Finally, I would tell myself to not attend classes for the sole purpose of getting a grade, but to gain application-based knowledge from my classes that I can use in my future endeavors. This is what I would tell myself as a high school senior.
