    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.

    I loved my time at Waubonsee! I went for TV/film, and learned so much. All of my teachers were wonderful, but I had some teachers that were amazing and inspired me to learn and engage in other subjects that I may not have considered without the right push. I wish this was a four-year institution, I would have never left!
    For the two and a half years I attended, I met an incredible amount of people and met some of the most passionate teachers I have ever had. Every teacher I had truly set their class up for you to succeed and learn through class discussion, not just through notes alone. Their campus is very clean, modern and have a large library. An area of improvement for the school would be the challenge of the classes I was able to take each semester; finding out some classes had been dropped due to low attendance or other reasons. These were classes I needed specific to my degree and needed in order to transfer to my current university. I was fortunate enough to take the Human Service courses between one year, while they were offered, but a lot of them were only offered at night and the lack of option proved difficult in my schedule. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Waubonsee and will never forget some teachers who significantly impacted me both academically and taught me lessons of life.
