I'm very happy I chose to go to community college before transferring to a university. Carl Sandburg College made the transition from high school to college smooth, and stress-free. The class sizes are not too big, so you can always have that one-on-one connection with your professor. Most professors are always available outside of their office times, and are always there to assist you, and help you to achieve the best grades, and experience you can while here. I have learned much more than I had expected to from a community college, and I love applying what I have learned in class to the outside world. The only thing I wish there was more of at Carl Sandburg is activities, extra-curriculars, and events because I believe involvement is key to making your time at Carl Sandburg College successful, and memorable.

Very nice staff! Everyone is friendly! The campus is very well cleaned! It's located in Galesburg, IL and is somewhat a small town! There are lots of food places around and near the campus! There is not much to do but the closest town(Peoria,IL) with something to do is only 45 minutes away!
Carl sandburg is just a great place to be, I love the school and the staff! Makes me feel safe. I play soccer here for a competitive athletic program which is awesome.
