Shawnee Community College is a small college located in rural Southern Illinois. It's offerings to local high school students make it stand apart from others and its classes and class sizes are reasonable for a beginner college student.
My experience at Shawnee community college was fantastic. It's not a university but I feel that its a start. Its getting me ready for a bigger university. The professors were very helpful and they well always there. What I really liked about Shawnee the most was the classes.
