What Our Students Say
Samaria Rosenthal

“At Kankakee Community College, I found my starting point as a first-generation college student, close to home. Now, graduating with a bachelor's in psychology from Eastern Illinois University, I cherish memories of engaging classes in Lifespan and Abnormal Psychology. Through advocacy and utilizing resources, I learned that in college, you're never alone. As a Student Trustee and part of TRIO, I grew in leadership and found support whenever I needed it.”

“KCC is a great choice for me. So far, my encounters with the teachers and staff at KCC have been great! I am able to get a great education at an affordable cost. The smaller class sizes allow students to get to know the teacher and fellow classmates a lot easier than a big 200+ size class at a university. The creativity and passion many have in their area of study shows up in the classroom.”
