This institution has provided me with a foundation that I may grow upon. the faculty are caring and helpful, there is a ton to get involved in, and our academic programs are rigorous and thought-provoking. I fully believe this college to be the perfect place for a student who is not sure on what they wish to do. We possess well constructed trade programs, fantastic academic advising, and many opportunities for one to take a hold of. My time at Sandburg has been some of the best spent of my life, and it has prepared me for hopefully even better times.

I have been completely shocked by the performance and professionalism of the instructors at CSC. All of them will do their best to accommodate every student, and it is obvious that they themselves love their job. I have learned an incredible amount due to the professors at Sandburg, and have actually formed bonds with them that I never had experienced with teachers in high school. The classes offered at Sandburg are perfect for my major, and allow me to make a great head-start towards my degree. The registration process is very simple, and all of the advisers, especially those at TRIO SSS, ensure that your credits are transferable if an individual wants education after Sandburg. The workload is manageable, however, similar to every school, if a student does not stay on top of his/her homework, it is easy to fall behind. The study options at Sandburg are amazing, Sandburg has a tutoring center where people can get individualized assistance with their classes. As well as the tutoring center, students can use the online tutoring provided along with the cost of tuition through Sandburg's website. Additionally, Sandburg has a application called Atomic Learning that is a knowledge base that students can use to study for their classes.

The fitness center at CSC is alright, it could be enlarged slightly because often most of the machines are being used at any given time, however, all the essential machines needed for a good workout are there. There is also a side room full of mirrors if you want to watch yourself exercise. The library at CSC has many computers, and the librarians are incredibly helpful and will help you with anything. The book selection is excellent, and the library also has several private rooms with a TV that can comfortably sit 8-10 people, allowing for larger study sessions. Campus activities are fun, especially with the numerous clubs that are at CSC, there is always something going on. My personal favorite is Fall Fest, where CSC has a rock climbing wall, music, free food, and all the clubs from the school are there trying to recruit members. The campus itself is gorgeous, and in the summer many people choose to sit outside and look over the lake.
