    Very, very clean campus. I have had great teachers so far. The campus is great. I love the library (and not just for the coffee). Also, the tutoring center is good. I am happy with this choice. Clean, comfortable. ...Continue reading

    I wish it were a four year college, inexpensive and nice campus. At first, I really wanted to an university and live on the dorms. However, I'm so glad I went to Moraine instead. I have no debt at all like my other classmates from high school. I was able take various classes and find my path. The teachers are awesome. I have learned so much and I became a way better student. ...Continue reading

    Great outside campus Lots to explore in terms of study corners, ways to get involved, and people to meet/ friends to make. I'm almost sad to transfer! The campus is beautiful and getting around is easy. The staff is very heplful. Teachers are caring and want you to be successful. The only thing I do not like about MVCC is the food, depending on what day it is the food can be good or the worst. Overall, MVCC is a great place to start your college career. ...Continue reading

    Moraine is a great option for students who wish to either transfer to a university, earn a certificate, or earn an associate's degree. First step: Check what can transfer. Second: Make sure FAFSA went through! Third: Register. While registering, check professor. Last thing you want is to pay for a class, drop, and all the good one's have been taken. *experience* ...Continue reading

    I love the services that they provide here, some of the teachers are wonderful and very specific on how they want their work done. The internship programs are bae. Teachers are great for the most part. You get a bang for your buck here. Beats all the city community colleges that's for sure. The only thing that could make this place better is the internet. It sucks. Sososososoooo much. ...Continue reading

  • Overall school rating 3/5
    One thing I must add that this college instructors are pretty easy on students and baby them. The grounds and buildings are nice and well-maintained, not run-down at all. Every staff member I've encountered has been fair, helpful, friendly, and understanding. I feel like they don't have many clubs, but what they do have is a good variety. The library also looks a little small, but the librarians are very helpful. However, I find myself in a horrible position of needing to finish my associate's elsewhere because moraine only accepts physics-203 teachers that can't speak English or explain exactly what is expected in lab. Avoid their physics classes unless you like self teaching! ...Continue reading

    So happy I play basketball at this college it is a really great and beautiful place to get your education. It's like high school still. Parking is a nightmare! Tutoring center is extremely under-funded. Otherwise, it's a nice campus and the academics are held to a high standard. When speaking to my friends at universities I'd venture to say that I am getting a BETTER education than them. ...Continue reading

    Great school, beautiful, clean, new, always exspanding, parking is tough sometimes depending on class time, safe, people smoke anyway but its supposed to be smoke free, nice clothes wear, open library, not consufing campus layout, always someone to help. Not too bad, but com-101 and any other gen-eds suck. I'm in the culinary program right now and it's pretty fun. The classes are small, too.

I though too many about withdrawing. He doesn't teach anything but brags about his power points useless attachemnt . Not helpfull at all. Tough grader. Long essay and too much homeworks. DO NOT Take any of his classes. The worst teacher ever. He made me buy two books one of which was n ...Continue reading

    Don't take any class with Mr. Doyle unless you want to get an F. Bad ommunication, Each test is based on 10 long essays. He is very tough on grading and on tests. You will get a couple of 1010 for the first two assignemnts. But once you get top the real material, you won't pass. Essays are 5 pages each and Exams consists of 10 essays each. I am at an F- now so I am withdrawing before it's too late. ...Continue reading

    He is the best, I loved his classes, he gives you all the right materials and has things to make your memorizing much easier. I recommend you read though, everything!!! If you don't take him, you're making the worst mistake. The final is the toughest one you'll ever take in your life but if you do well on the tests, you should be fine. ...Continue reading

    Eh, she was alright. Not the worst teacher I've taken but certainly not the best. On one assignment she expresses her views on the students which I didn't care for and if the papers aren't the way she likes them, then you won't meet criteria. Still got a B because of something called a B Contract which was pretty cool. Take if you want a B... ...Continue reading

    102 with her is a LOT more difficult than Macro101 but I still have huge respect for her and she is a great teacher. Very clear with discussion and as long as you take good notes and study ahead of the weekly quizzes you will get at least a C. Put a little more effort and you will get a B. Don't miss class or you will be lost... She can sometimes seem all over the place, but overall she was easy to follow. Don't get intimidated by the first day, the class is pretty easy. There are a lot of quizzes and a few tests. One project but it is very simple, you can pretty much do it in one day. I'd recommend her ...Continue reading

    Some negative comments on this but I really liked her! First day she explained everything and as long as you do your homework (even though not required) you will get a B. Her tests weren't difficult and the final is pretty much the study guide. Take her and AVOID CHAN! Ballouta is great at explaining and she is an amazing teacher. Shws ALWAYS there for extra help. The course is a tough one and but she takes the time to teach it well. She is good to joke with occasionally as well :) please take her ...Continue reading

    The most stressful class ever due to the person teaching it. However, if you ask a question about an assignment she makes you feel stupid. Her criteria is NOT clear on what she wants, then she gets mad if we question it. Pretty easy small papers, Journals daily, you HAVE to participate or you will not pass. The grading criteria isn't clear, questions are publicly shamed, and everything is confusing. No blackboard, so you'll have no idea what your grade is, or why. 50% of your grade depends on participating in irrelevant class discussion. Possibly the most disrespectful professor ever. AVOID. ...Continue reading

    Attended every class, still ended up with a bad grade. I get that calc is a hard subject. There's no reason to try to teach at a university level. It's moraine valley!!!! For gods sake. the tests are very tricky!!!! Ways of teaching are confusing. He is a tough grader. Class started with 30 students now there is less than half. I do not recommend any one taking him. His tests are tricky. Repeat do not take. He is an adjunct so he is never there to ask questions. ...Continue reading

    I am an older student and algebra is the hardest class I have ever taken. Ms. Chan goes completely through each process step by step and gives out worksheets to practice on.

    Amazing Teacher! Very nice. Tests were identical to his notes. Must take good notes, Extra credit on the practicals. He stated in the beginning of class he does not fail students as long as they try. Really cared for his students and that gained my respect for him. I would definitely take him for 181 if he taught it in the summer ( Pretty straightforward follow the study guide read over the notes and you get an A. Labs are up to you, but if you wanna pass go over the list he gives you, use the models, and match it up with the lab book or ask him for help. Will take 181 with him, great class, class was from 7-9:45, you really get out at like 8:30 8:45 max. ...Continue reading

    Mr. Piercy has been absolutely wonderful during my course of intermediate algebra. If it weren't for his grading, helpfulness, and just the simple fact the he cares, I wouldn't have passed this course. Im terrible at math and he has made this a breeze. He responds to emails quickly and will accommodate your needs if possible. Highly recommend him! ...Continue reading
