Maha - 01/22/2020

It is very accommodating and welcoming. I was able to complete all my prerequisites here and now i am ready to transfer to a university. Everything about the campus makes it easy to attend from parking to location and the buildings. The counselors help guide in whatever you need. The teachers are great and the class selection is impressive. I would recommend Moraine to anyone starting off.

Emily - 11/14/2019

It's clear that people don't treat it like it's a college. Some of the professors are really helpful, but most don't answer emails within a three-week time period. The campus itself is really nice, and so is the gym. Library is super nice, some students just don't treat it as a library.

Dashawn - 10/15/2019

Moraine Valley is a very good college to attend. They have plenty of programs, in various areas of study, Moraine is a very technical school. It almost feels like you are on a University campus.

Moraine is the ideal place to test the college waters. The staff is very welcoming and will assist you with anything you need. They also try their best to make sure you are on the correct path and they make you feel secure. Classes are very beneficial and productive because whatever you discuss within the lecture benefits you and is vital information for your degree. With that said, the campus is a very good size and within every building is a coffee café to boost your mornings or nights.

  10. What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

    I brag primarily about the classes. The teachers are pretty laid back and the cirriculum is challenging yet easy at the same time. A majority of my teachers don't require students to turn in homework, which is pretty cool considering that I have zero time to do homework due to work and other activities. Though while they are lax about homework, they are strict on tests and projects. How well we do there determines our status and grade in the class.
