Kara - 07/24/2019

Kaskaskia is very small so it’s good for someone who enjoys knowing everyone. The professors are very knowledgeable and they do a great job of helping students understand the topics discussed in their class. The campus is well maintained with an amazing fitness center and fitness trail, but the hours for the fitness center are not the greatest. They offer free tutoring through the ACE, but often the tutors don’t have the best knowledge about the subject. Overall, I would recommend KC to a friend, but only if they were okay with living in the middle of no where in a city with no night life.

Kati - 05/01/2019

I love it here! This place has taught me so much. I am glad I chose this school to attend before transferring to a Universitity.

Kelsey - 01/11/2019

Kaskaskia College is an exceptional institution. Although the main campus stands in a humble community, the college attracts many students from multiple areas of southern Illinois. As high school graduation approached, I was unsure of the path that I would take in secondary education. The academic advisors and instructors have been extremely helpful in making my transition from high school to college a success. I was even able to have a personal meeting with one instructor of the Radiologic Technology program, in which I am currently enrolled, before I applied for acceptance. All of my classes have been academically challenging and rewarding, and I am grateful that my heavy coarse load is possible due to the variety of options for times and locations. Not only do I have a challenging curriculum, but I have a supportive group of classmates and professors as well. It is truly a privilege to receive a quality college education within the comfort of the community in which I reside and work. I am proud to say that Kaskaskia College has been ranked the second-best community college in the entire state of Illinois, but to the students, it is ranked number one in spirit.

Kaitlyn - 12/31/2018

It isn't a bad school, especially if you are on a budget. It isn't top notch either though. Many teachers are opinionated and not too open to discussions. There are very few clubs too, and what clubs there are, they aren't really recognized or talked about. It is mainly just class and go, nothing more to it. A bit like high school if you weren't in any sports.

Kaskaskia College FAQS

  1. What is the Acceptance Rate at Kaskaskia College?

    The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Kaskaskia 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?

    If I could go back in time and talk to myself when I was a high school senior, I would have much to say. First of all, I would tell myself to take more dual-credit classes. College is not cheap and I would welcome the opportunity to take a free college level course. I would also tell myself to keep my focus and study every night for just a few minutes, because it will save time craming the night before. Another piece of advice I would give is to get more involved. I was involved in many groups, but I still wish I participated in other activities and played more sports. My final suggestion would be to have fun. This is your last year and you can never get this time back, so enjoy it!

KC has proved to be very cheap compared to other colleges and universities, yet very good at preparing students for either transferring or the real world.

  6. What's unique about your campus?

    I spent my first semester of college at a four year university. I quickly realized that it was not the school for me. It was about six hours away from my hometown, and I knew noone. I really did not like the school, or the major I had chosen there. So, I came back my second semester to our community college. This has given me time to get back on my feet and decided what I want to do, and they really worked around my schedule. If unsure about a major or anything, go to your local community college.

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

    I like Kaskaskia College. I knew a lot about the school before I attened it is in my home town of Centralia Illinois. At Kaskaskia I played Golf and really enjoyed doing that. I feel becoming active in a sport or activity really helps you get to know your peers. I have made some really good friends at Kaskaskia and I hope I will make even more at my next school I attend. I think before you go to a college you really need to make sure it is the right place for you.
