What Our Students Say
LoRyelle Robinson in the Riverfront Campus courtyard

Attending KCC was the best choice I have ever made after high school. Going to Kankakee Community College not only acquires you more time for making decisions, but it also helps you start saving money before a potential transfer to a college university.

— LoRyelle Robinson, A.A. '21

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.
