I think this a great school that people should come to, to get their AA degree. The teachers are very helpful to the students and make time for us. The dorms are very cozy and spacious. Everyone at the school is friendly, makes you feel at home. Easy to talk to people here.

It’s a great college to to start off at. Fun, cheap, and affordable to start working to get your associates degree. The intimidation of a university isn’t there to make you feel uneasy or pressured, Indian river state colleg is what I view as a stress free campus. Helped it always offered to students and the amount of opportunities to excel is astounding.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

First of all, I would like to clarify that I was not an Aerospace major at IRSC. My IRSC experience was as a dual enrollment high school student, during which time I took 27 credit hours -- some on-campus, some online. Aerospace Engineering will be my major -- eventually -- when I get to the University of Florida after I complete my AA at Santa Fe College and the Prerequisites for Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering in Santa Fe's Honor's Program. With that in mind, I will endeavor to hit the highlights of my experiences at The River. Thankfully, I had the luxury of living at my parents' home because I honestly cannot imagine wanting to live in those dorms. I mean, who does that? "Ooh, yay! I got into IRSC and move into my dorm next month!" The whole point of IRSC is to stay home and save money before you go away to a real university to finish your degree, or to stay home and save money for the whole four years if you are majoring in something they actually have there and with which you're satisfied with the quality of the program. To actually move to this area and pay for on-campus housing to attend this school, or even worse -- off-campus housing -- is ludicrous. The "affordable" apartments and condos for rent near the main campus are in some pretty scary, high crime neighborhoods, and everything else in any of the counties where there is an IRSC campus is crazy expensive -- far beyond the means of all but the most affluent college students, and affluent is not the word I would use to describe most of IRSC's student body. I am going to skim over the food and extracurricular activities because I really wasn't interested in either. The extent of my experience with the food was primarily vending machines. When my high school's chapter of Mu Alpha Theta competed at the Math Olympics, we did grab a quick bite in the cafeteria, and it was fine -- primarily fast food fare, basically what you'd expect, I guess. Regarding the extracurriculars, I did see posters for different organizations, plays, and musical performances, etc., on campus, as well as on my online page. I am aware that the college has a vibrant musical arts department because it hosts the annual 4-County Honor Bands Festival, in which I have participated several times during high school. I am also aware of the politically, socially, and environmentally active groups on campus because those are topics of interest to me, so I guess their flyers -- physical and online -- caught my attention, and because my friends and I participate in causes on a regular basis. Now I will get to the meat of the matter -- the actual education I received from the courses I took at IRSC. Frankly, it depends on which class as to how much I got out of it and how much I learned. There were some classes I chose to take at IRSC because I knew the class was a walk in the park with that particular professor, and I was taking a particularly heavy load at school, including AP and Honors classes, and was preparing for difficult Solo and Ensemble Competitions or auditions, etc. Heck, I took one class that was an in-person class that actually conflicted with my high school AP Calc BC class. My mom almost had a stroke, but I knew the professor did not require attendance and that everything could be done online. I was right. I got an A. I have no idea what that class was even about right now. I don't even remember which class it was, but I got an A. There were other classes that I took because the professor was reputed to be an amazing teacher, and I wanted to learn the material. That was the case with U.S. History I and II. That professor was amazing and I learned a ton from him! I went to extra lectures that he gave at public libraries on Saturdays when I could because he was that good. So, the academics are as good as the professor and you get whatever you want from the classes you choose to take. I would recommend always asking around and researching classes and professors to find the right fit to meet your needs. Finally, the facilities at the three campuses I visited (attended classes at one, attended events at the other two) are all very nice and are nicely maintained. The one in St. Lucie West is very close to lots of great dining, shopping, and entertainment options. The one in Stuart is just a short drive to the same. The main campus in Ft. Pierce is a longer drive to a cute downtown area, and it's through a pretty rough, high-crime neighborhood. All-in-all, Ft. Pierce is a rough, high-crime place when compared to St. Lucie West and Stuart. For students considering dual enrolling at IRSC, I highly recommend it. For those considering it as a live-at-home to save money option, that works, too. For someone looking for that "college experience" in sunny Florida, there are far better options. Just my humble opinion.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think that Indian River State would be a good choice of college to go to. The environment is great and their very informative about any of the majors you're interested in. I haven't met one impolite person yet, and they are less expensive than a private college or university. I can't wait to be attending there this fall. Hopefully it will be like everything I have hoped for in a college. I also love that they have a little section of brochures, informing you about any career you choose. It's pretty easy to find a parking space, and you never have to make an appointment to go visit the college. I have been told that they offer help to students who need it. So hopefully, they won't be too busy to provide the help I might need in the near future. And if you want to attend that college, you must first attend an orientation, like every other college. And the good thing about it is, you are allowed to schedule when would be the best time to attend the orientation. The people I have met are very polite and have manners. The downside is, you have to pay for your lunch. But I'm pretty sure that every college and university you go to, will require you to pay for your lunch. From what I've heard, the class sizes are pretty small. Which is a plus, because that gives teachers the advantage of really getting to know who you are as a person. Their acceptance rate is at least 100%, which, if you ask me, is a pretty good thing, because if no other colleges have accepted you, at least you still have Indian River who has accepted you with open arms. You don't even have to send in your transcripts right away, or your math and reading scores. They will still accept you, but make sure to give them whatever it is that you need to give, or else you won't be able to attend their college.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Indian River State is an amazing university. The professors are professional and helpful. They try to explain the curricular as easily as they possibly can. Majority of them are outgoing and have a passion for what they do. The social life is great too! There are so many nice people that are trying to fulfill their goals and aspirations just like you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a great school if you know what you are there to do. Most professors are very helpful if you show up to class and do your work. They have great science programs. Most school activities are held at the main campus which make it hard to attend. At the Pruitt campus, there is no food. They have a lunch room which contains an empty Subway counter which is no longer in use. They substituted it with a giant snack store which is powered by a computer. The library is very large and has many computers.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Indian river state college is the best, to be honest. They teach so well, the teachers are nice, and they are so attentive to every student. This college is so quick to maneuver and get around the classes is simple. The schedules are amazing. They are just a great school, and this is coming from a dual enrollment student studying for criminal justice.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have attended this college for almost three years now and everything from the campus size to class size is absolutely perfect and extremely comforting. Campuses, as well as the classes, are not too big nor too small and are a perfect learning environment for less distractions and students seeking to have more one-on-one time with a professor.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Mueller campus needs an overhaul of counselors. They rush you through the process and don't explain anything well or at all. I usually leave more confused than before I arrived! Leslie Simpson is the worst. Takes six weeks to return an email, forget a call back, getting an appointment with her is at least 6 weeks out and then she can't get you out of her office fast enough! She needs to go!
