Moraine Valley Community College ranks in the top 20 community colleges in the nation, according to RateMyProfessors.com.

The website, the largest online destination for professor and college ratings, ranks community colleges and four-year institutions annually based on analyzing professor ratings and campus ratings. Moraine Valley was 17th for the 2012-13 academic year, according to the website and a press release from Moraine Valley.

“We are pleased that our students think as highly as we do of our faculty and campus,” director of college and community relations Mark Horstmeyer said. “Our ranking, however, is not surprising but confirming of what students have expressed to us over the years and a reason they choose Moraine Valley for their college experience.”

Students who responded to the college rating website praised the faculty for their caring and attention, the tutoring center and campus safety. Parking was an issue with some students.

“This campus is the closest a student will ever get to experience a university-like school. The staff is excellent and always willing to help. This is not high school anymore, and professors expect hard work out of their students. Great school. I don’t regret coming here,” one student commented.

Another student wrote, “As a returning student from the military, it is an excellent value for your money.”
