What Our Students Say
Melany Villagomez

KCC truly embodies 'start here finish anywhere.' At KCC the class sizes are smaller so it'll be an easier transition from high school to college, but it also will mean that professors are more attentive to student needs. Some of the best professors I had throughout my undergrad were professors who are still at KCC.

— Melany Villagomez, A.A. '19

KCC has been the best choice when choosing what college to go to, all the professors are very helpful and if you need anything, they will always help no matter the situation! KCC is an amazing college and even if you have doubts, it's definitely worth giving it a shot because you won't be disappointed!

Jakob Knox

After graduating high school, I was hesitant about attending a four-year university, and was reluctant on what I wanted to pursue professionally. I chose Kankakee Community College because it offered me the freedom of pursuing what I wanted to, and the guidance and academic support I needed to excel both personally and academically. KCC really set me up for success as it provided me with those real-world experiences and immersed me in our community.
