It is a good school to complete general education or an Associates degree. The classes are fun and interesting and I have found the professors to be extremely willing to help their students understand the lessons. The class sizes are small so you are able to receive a more intimate education. Most of the professors try to get to know their students.
McHenry County College is the place to be. They are very well organized and know what they are doing. This is only a community college but the professors here are like Universities, they want to help and are always available. The faculty here is also very helpful, if you have a question they will not hesitate to answer it. The campus it self is very convenient, it is very easy to get around and there are great seating outside for some fresh air. I love Mchenry County College.
MCC is a good school. It had a comfortable environment and it had a good curriculum for a community college. They offer a wide variety of non credit career classes to help anyone get started in the career of their dreams. MCC was also reasonably priced for those who have financial concerns.
I believe McHenry County College is an exception community college. It provides great opportunities for local student who want to continue their education at a reasonable price. MCC offers a wide variety of different degrees. We have a huge brand new science center being built, the business professors have great outside knowledge. MCC encourages every student to get involved and has something going on every week to get the students involved in extracurricular activities.

Assuming that I could go back in time to speak with myself as a high school senior I would have to tell myself not to put off getting financial help. I was told when entering MCC that holding off on loans and things of that nature was a good idea but now I'm starting to think that maybe I should have just started off getting government help. Another thing that I would tell myself would have to be that college really is not the same as high school. Its not overly harder but it is different in the way that everything operates. I was told before entering that college would be a lot more relaxed and now I know why. People are not more comfortable with the fact that they are in fact adults now, they just do not care enough to hound after anyone about work that needs to be done. College life is very different as well, being an adult wont really change how people think just what they say to explain their actions. Going to MCC is not too big a change, going to a larger place would be better, like a university.
Mixed variety of students from local high schools and university drop outs.
The classes are small, so you have more one on one time with teachers. The teachers are right there with you and it's easy to get help outside of class.
Something unique about MCC is that it is very small and comfortable. The classes do not have more than 20 or 30 students, in fact, most of the classes I have been in have less than that. Because of this, professors and students are able to get to know each other which helps with the learning process.
It is a quiet, quaint community college which allows for a very beneficial beginning to my future schooling and career plans.
The worst thing about the school would be that I get lost very easily. I would get lost easily because there are so many buildings.
Any person who knows what they would like to major in or even study.
If someone has a desire to acquire a four-year degree at a larger college or university, this is an excellent means of completing the required courses for much less money and in a smaller school community. Additionally, for someone like myself who is interested in receiving a certificate for a particular program without needing the required courses, this is an excellent choice. Anyone serious about their education, rather than partying every weekendin the dorm or elsewhere, would find this a welcome environment.
The thing that I usually brag about is how low cost my community college is. Most of my friends went away to school and are spending significantly more money than me for an education of equal value.
The most frustrating thing about my school is how difficult it is to get into the classes you want and need to finish your degree. Often times classes fill up very fast leaving you no other option then chosing a different classes. In other cases, as with the honors classes at my school. There is such low enrollment that the class is dropped. Two honors classes in one semester that I wanted to take were dropped due to low enrollment.
MCC is known for Associate degrees and assisting people to get into larger colleges. They help a lot to get people into larger colleges to get bachelor and master degrees, things of that nature.
Before going to MCC I would have liked to know some things about what would be expected. I was a little surprised by the work load being what it was and the time needed to keep up with all my classes. Even picking my days with care it was a bit of a surprise when I got to my classes and sat in there for hours taking notes then being told that I have hours of homework to do once I get home. After a while it gets better though. College teachers aren't as forgiving as high school teachers.
