From my experience at Sauk Valley Community College I learned a lot about how one on one teaching skills work. Sauk has always been an incredibly personal and is willing to put the students first. The campus itself feels safe to me and I have gained many friends out of my experience. Along with my personal satisfaction, I have gained educational satisfaction; meaning that the classes I have taken have been formal and education, and at the same time realistic and practical.

Coming to Sauk Valley Community College was a great choice for me because I received a full ride academic scholarship and was able to receive two years of education for free. Even without the tuition waiver, however, Sauk is a very affordable school and gives you a quality education for prices much lower than a four year university. The professors and staff want the best for every student and are very helpful in aiding success. I recommend the TRIO program.
I have previously graduated from Sauk. I am planning on returning in the next month to continue my education, 18 years after I graduated. Things have changed since I was out there last. Everyone I met today was very encouraging.
