Leah - 01/26/2024

I believe that Kankakee Community College is an amazing way to begin the process of gaining a higher education. KCC has clubs for many to join, offers many services and has a very supportive and safe environment. Overall, the education at Kankakee Community College truly prepares you for what can be encountered at differing university levels. The public safety and police department are also very involved with not only keep the campus safe, but building a connection with the students on campus.

Isabel - 12/16/2020

In my opinion, the school has an adequate educational curriculum for a community college. The professors are very helpful and email back quite fast. The classes are not that difficult, and I would recommend this college to people who want to get their associate's degree before going to a 4-year university.

Lillian

I believe kcc is a very affordable way to get a head start in your career. It is reliable and effective for those looking for an education.

KeMia

It's a community college in a small town where you can affordably get your 2-year degree. What else is there to say? Definitely won't have the same vibe and experiences as a 4 year university but no big deal. Most people just graduate and transfer to a 4 year school or earn a few credits in the summers. The campus is beautiful because it's along the river and there are trails to hike and run on. Art pieces and park benches are also there so you can just sit and watch the geese or study under the shade of a tree. There are large open spaces where there are events like "Movie on the River" or little music concerts. The architecture of the building is also unique too with lot's of natural lighting.

Kankakee Community College FAQS

    The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Kankakee Community 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?

    Above all things, I would advise myself to not let school tire me. I have been attending school almost non-stop since my sophomore year in high school, including summers. Looking back, I should have allowed myself those summers in order to be a kid, rather than a mini-adult. I have noticed my grades slipping slightly during my past few semesters, and I believe the biggest cause of this is my being utterly burned out. I've over-expended myself, and that's a very unwise thing to do when one plans to be in school for a long time, as I do. In short, I would advise me to pace myself.

  5. What's unique about your campus?

    Kankakee Community College was very convent to me because it?s only a thirty minute drive for me. It has a lot of courses that will help benefit you if you are still unaware of what you would like to do when you enter college. If you are aware of what you may want to do in college it has lots of set courses to go into. Advisors are very helpful and do their best if they do not know the answer to find it out. Plus this college helps you transfer out to other colleges and universities pretty easy!!

  6. What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

    I wish that I would have known what it was like at a state university and I wish I would have experienced campus life. It's one thing to go to college, but at a community college you don't quite get that campus life feel of things. Also I wish would have known that no matter where you go the courses are going to be tough, and you're going to have to work at them.
