All of my professors and counselors have been caring and very helpful! I have attended both the Sugar Grove and Aurora campuses and they're both in a good area, with lots of places on the outskirts that you can go to in between classes. The buildings are also very clean. I LOVE this school! The only con about it is that there are not many opportunities to be social (school events). Although
it is an open campus and anyone can walk in, I have always felt safe. The school has officers and police cadets monitoring the area.

Waubonsee Community College is an exceptional junior college. The professors are knowledgable about what they teach, and they take the time to connect with their students by adding humor and real-life scenarios during class. I have noticed this with almost all of my professors so far at Waubonsee, and it has made my experience much more enjoyable. Also, the campus is super nice and is always clean. I have met so many good friends at Waubonsee because everyone is incredibly nice and compassionate towards each other. Everyone is basically there for the same reasons, so it is easier to connect with others around you. I have learned a great deal of knowledge and information not just about the classes and the subjects, but about life as well. The professors take the time to teach you about lifelong skills and lessons that will help you as you further your education.
The professor are awesome, the students services. I had a lot of opportunities get involved in college, and that made my experince greater!
