Student Reviews and Ratings for South Suburban College
A terrible out-of-date community college. My professor cancelled class one time but did not even email the class about it. Instead he came to school to tell us. That was extremely inconvenient because he is not tech savvy so he was not aware that he can email us. This college really needs to improve their technology and administration. A lot of so called professors are just here for a check and I honestly did not learn anything here. Also, a lot of staff is not friendly as well. Please go to another community college.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™

This is a great institution. Students just need to put the effort and not act like clowns. Females beware; many male creeps go here who do not know how to take rejection. Teachers are very caring. Cashiers are a little snotty.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
I have a graduate degree. I retired early and returned to enroll in several Special Interest classes. I am absolutely thrilled with the Instructors and the interest that that they share with the students. I love the Music Department and the Performances.
