Sauk Valley Community College Reviews

Sauk is a really good economical choice when it comes to a starter school. The environment is really friendly and the staff is helpful, depending on which professor you have. Some professors are very concerned and dedicated to helping students pass, however other professors don't care if you pass or fail and don't make helping their students a priority. The school is great as long as you choose your professors wisely and stay dedicated.

I'm a single mother and the fact that Sauk offers the nursing program makes it convenient for me to attend. It's close to home, daycare, and work. The professors are very understanding of my situation and are always available for questions and such.
My major is Social Work, and with my first semester, I was able to take a class that was taught by an actual social worker, which I found really helpful and interesting because of his experiences that he shared with us. So far there hasn't been much of a hard workload; the teachers realize that you have jobs and families, and they give you enough to get you to learn the information, without putting you into overdrive. As far as the internship/job opportunities, if you are eligible, Sauk has a work study program, as well as AmeriCorps which allow for students to fit in a job as well as going to school, and they are really good at working around your class schedule so that you can get your homework done when you need to.
