#MoraineValues your other commitments and responsibilities in addition to being a student, which includes your time. If Palos Hills is too far out of your way, consider enrolling in courses at one of our extension sites, the Southwest Education Center in Tinley Park or the Education Center at Blue Island! Students who live or work near these areas love the convenience they provide, plus all of the same services you will find on our main campus.

Come to SWEC's Information Night on Aug. 1, or Blue Island's on Aug. 8, from 5 – 7 p.m. to see all these sites have to offer and take the next step towards achieving your academic goals. Learn more and RSVP at the link in bio.

You're looking at certified culinarians! Last month, we celebrated our first group of students to receive this honor from the American Culinary Federation (ACF). Each was awarded a special diploma and a patch to wear on their chef’s jacket. Read the story and learn more about our culinary program at the link in our bio. 👩‍🍳 ...

Did you know that we have a cadaver lab on campus?? Instructor Sam Chen showed us around! If you’re a health sciences student who needs elective credits, you can take 8-week dissection courses this fall and experience the lab for yourself 🩻

Transcription: So, BIO-182 is where you can take the skin off and explore the muscles, and even take a look at what’s inside somebody’s chest. We open it up to see the heart, lungs, and then 183 is where we actually crack open a person’s head. We take a look at the brain, take out their spinal cord and section them as we look inside their intestines, and bisect them in half to look at their pelvic organs. We see a lot of things. When you open up somebody, you never know what’s going to be there, so it’s always a surprise.

For this #MoraineValleyFact, we're headed over to Building C, or Dr. Vernon O. Crawley Science Hall. Dr. Crawley served for 21 years from 1991-2012 as Moraine Valley's fourth president. He began his professional career as a scientist, so it's fitting that the building (home to our science programs) is named after him! This includes the health sciences, which have a long history of student success with high completion and employment rates upon graduation.

#MoraineValues healthcare workers, so we offer many opportunities to help you reach your career goals in the medical field. One of those programs is Sleep Technology, where students learn about sleep as a component of health, sleep disorders, and the knowledge, skills and behaviors needed to become a sleep technologist via lectures, labs and clinicals. 💤

#MoraineValues knowledge, including the individuals who work hard everyday to share it with others. Sara Cook is one of those people, who chose to pursue a career in teaching after exploring her options at Moraine Valley. She completed her general education requirements along with many Early Childhood Education classes before transferring to Saint Xavier University.

“The Education Department at Moraine Valley is tight-knit and small, and that’s a benefit,” she said. “When you have a smaller community, everyone’s a little bit closer. You really get to know your teachers, and the teachers get to know you—and they know you by name. They really care about you and want to set you up for success. It was a great starting point,” she said.
