I believe Carl Sandburg College is the perfect community college to attend before you attend a university or other trade school. Carl Sandburg offers many different student services with excellent faculty to help you whenever you need it. The class sizes are reasonable, giving you a better classroom experience, along with the tuition being reasonably priced.
Brittany from Galesburg, IL
Straight out of High School i knew from the get go that i would be going to Carl Sandburg. I always wanted to go there feeling that i can get somewhere in life if have the chance to go there i could go anywhere. So being said Carl Sandburg is a great choice for a graduate out of highschool or just someone trying to hone in on some skills and knowledge of what they want in life.
