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.
Review Sauk Valley Community College
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.
I really enjoy attending Sauk, because of the fact that I can go to school as well as stay close to home, so that I can save money. The class sizes allow for the students to get to know the teachers, and feel more comfortable asking questions that they may have, as well as developing a relationship with your instructors, which really can come in handy, depending who your teacher is, with their understandings of when you may have emergencies and can't make a lecture, or do an assignment. Overall, I really do think that Sauk is a great school to go to, because the environment is one where you can learn and save money while doing it.
