One of the best community colleges in Illinois! I loved my experience here. Social life is not the best. FYI, some of the counselors are not very helpful. Tom and Ulysses are great though. I will be transferring to NIU this coming Spring.

All professors are very understanding of individual circumstances and are willing to accommodate plans that lead to your success. The Sugar Grove Campus is the most busy due to its larger size, and that being said, it has a very local collage feel to it (in the best possible way)!
I really like that the teachers are very understanding and give students the planned assignments ahead of time. What I would like to see changing is some of the stuff that is present in the student center. For example, there were shirts hanging from the top railing to stop sexual abuse, and one shirt had "I hate my dad, he deserves to die" along with other disgusting words to call a father. It's heart breaking for the fathers who come in to Waubonsee to get an education, and instead they feel targeted.
