SPRINGFIELD – If you live near a community college in Illinois, get used to this phrase: “For Every Student, For Every Community” is the slogan for the newly named system, “The Community Colleges of Illinois.”
Skylar Stewart of Nokomis can vouch for the education she is getting at Lincoln Land Community College in Springfield.
“My experience has been absolutely amazing,” she told a statehouse news conference. “I can’t speak highly enough about it. They make it so easy to learn the material with the small class sizes. The instructors try to know you on a personal level, and you’re not just another student walking through the door.”
The state has 48 community colleges.
