What is your overall opinion of this school?

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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love KC, but there could definitely be some improvements. The food is great, just not a lot that I would eat just from personal preference. The admissions staff is anything but helpful most of the time, the teachers are great, though. The classes are great, too. I don't quite like going to class, but they are very educational.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The education and people here are nice and helpful, but there is no entertainment that is very close. The teachers are helpful because they are willing to give help whenever you need as long as it fits there schedule and most people are helpful when it comes to classes and studying.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoy KC. Some but not all the professors are really helpful and caring as well. Great student to teacher ratio. Small campus but that's how I'd prefer it to be. Only thing I don't like is its location. There is nothing to do around here unless you drive an hour to a bigger city

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Kaskaskia College is a small college for people that don't mind driving 30 minutes to school. It's a nice school, but some of the staff do not respond to questions or help students. Most do! But some do not. The campus itself is actually really pretty.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I first began high school I always thought I was going to Rend Lake College. Later on in my high school career a professor from Kaskaskia College came to speak to my Ag class. I instantly changed my mind and i realized that Kaskaskia College was the best college in my interest. I have almost finished my first semester and I love it.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

Kaskaskia College is unique in many ways. I think if I were an outsider looking in, Kaskaskia College would seem to be a very high quality of education but not at that extremely high college price. 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.

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

What a loaded question. Since I am a college freshman, I have less than one year of college experience under my belt. But don't think for a second that that disqualifes me from gaining valuable knowledge about colleges, universities, and other postsecondary schools. College is such a unique experience that I would encourage anybody to go and continue their education. Thinking back as a high school senior, things were so different than where they were last year. Working hard as the Nashville FFA Chapter President, I learned what it truly meant to serve, lead by example, and prepare for the future whether it was mine as an individual, or for the good of the Chapter. Because I made mistakes, and because I learned from them, there is not a thing I would change. Sure, there are things I would like to say to myself. But they are not negative or based off of regrets of my actions. If I really were able to speak to myself back then, I think I would tell myself to never ever give up, to never stop trying, because I am powerful, excellent, and can do anything I set my mind to!

What kind of person should not attend this school?

That's simple.. Nobody! KC is cheap enough to afford, especially with financial aid. They have a multitude of programs to accomodate anybody's interests including but not limited to: Horticulture, auto mechanics, music, or agri-business! With all of the opportunities at Kaskaskia, it's no wonder there are over 12,000 enrolled students which is more than any other college in Illinois! Anybody can find their place at KC, and that's why I feel at home there.

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

If I could go back to myself as a high school senior and give myself advice the first thing I would tell myself is calm down. I know now everything is going to be okay! I would try to get myself not to worry about money and paying for school, even though money is tight, things will find away to work them out. I would also let myself know that going to a junior college is not going to be bad or ruin my college experience; you will have fun there as you would anywhere else. I would let myself relax and enjoy the last days of high school. As a senior in high school, I was scared to go to college and change my life completely but now I know it was not bad after all! So generally, I would just tell myself that you are a good student, person, and you work, hard everything will work out in the end. I would also let myself know that all the time you spend filling out scholarship applications, writhing short essays sometimes pay off, and when they do, it feels great!

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.
