4 College Senior

Academic Experience: Being a community college, we don't declare majors but the counselors have made sure to place me in classes that will count towards my major once I transfer. I'm very close to receiving my Associates in Science and then I will pursue a double major in Business Administration and Computer Science. The workload is perfect, and allows me to stay busy and and achieve good grade as long as I do my best. There is an entire board full of local job opportunities that is always being update. The facilities are very modern, and Carl Sandburg has several computer labs supported by an amazing IT department that mends any problems very quickly.

Academic Experience: 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.
