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.

Great starter school, professors helped a lot and I have grown tremendously. Appreciate the time the staff puts in after-hours to help students, it seems like they actually care about their students.
Since the first day at Sandburg, I felt at home. Everyone was so helpful in showing you where your classes were, and where you needed to be. The class sizes are average and you get to know people around you quickly. It seems like everyone in the classroom is working together instead of you just on your own. That's what makes it feel like home because you can just easily fit in and feel welcomed.
