Hailee - 10/22/2020

IRSC is a very good school for what was, until recent years, a community college. There are many good and patient teachers who you'll love and only a few who will cause problems. The school is known for its incredible swim team but the sports aren't too popular outside of the athlete's attention. Housing is not often used but it is available for students.


im transfering there and it is a pretty good school . my mom is a student there now .she loves it . shes there for her RN and she suggested that i should transfer to the school , and continue my education there .


I like this college because it is small, but I like the classroom to be more engaging. With a smaller group it is easier to speak with the professor and to share your ideas with the class. There are many local campuses in the treasure coast depending on which county you live in. The classes are easy to find, and the campus is clearly labelled. We do not have the most advanced technology throughout campus, but the computer lab does have the newest edition of the apple computers. We do not have many sports or public sports events which takes away from the fun atmosphere. Overall it is a decent school with some great professors.


I started at Indian River State College not so long ago. However, this does not mean that I do not how is the campus life just yet. In a few days I will start my fall classes. I have never met someone who is more excited than me. I have fun in all my classes, this does not mean I don't pay attention. On the contrary, I love to learn new, and interesting things. But, Indian River State College makes you feel at home; even on the most serious classes, you might find a few minutes to laugh. I cannot wait to meet new classmates and share my knowledge.

  17. What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate?

    Personally I don't notice any sort of Stereotype that involves all students at Indian River State college, but allot of other non-IRSC students believe that only students that cant get into a University and want to stay in the treasure coast attend Indian Rover State College. But that isn't an accurate statement. I chose to attend Indian River State college because it is the 4th most affordable college in the country. I wanted to take a more economical approach too furthering my education, doing as much as possible to stay out of debt. And that is what so many other students strive for as well with all the opportunities given to them at Indian River State college.
