Am learning a lot
Some of it was review for me, like the math and science classes, but there are also classes that I had not taken before, such as Intro to Shakespeare and Intro to British Literature.
Am enjoying being here
They have events in the student center almost every week. They also have discussions, concerts, and plays performed by the students and various guests. They have plenty of clubs and organizations, and if there isn't one for you, you can make one.
Bang for the buck
For me, it was worth every penny. You get what you pay for here. They have classes for days, evenings, and the weekend. They have classes for online and off-campus. They have great facilities and the faculty want you to succeed.
Tips for prospective students
Pay attention when you're signing up for classes. Waubonsee has more than one campus, and if you're not careful, you could be taking classes at a campus you can't reach. Another thing to keep in mind is online classes. You need to have the discipline to get assignments in on time, and comment on the discussion boards. The online classes are not quite as forgiving as the normal classes.
Great for these types of students
This is a great school for those who don't know what subject they want to major into, or for those who want to get their general education courses out of the way.

The classes are small with a lot of individual attention, I was nervous after taking some time off after high school, that college classes would catch me off guard, but this is a great place to start your learning & get into the college level work load.
Am enjoying being here
Pretty campus, nice teachers, great schedules & opportunities. Very convenient & student friendly.
Bang for the buck
I am saving SO MUCH MONEY! It was hard for me to opt for a community college instead of a 4 year school right away, but it was well worth it. Definitely!
Tips for prospective students
Go to class, work hard, have a perfect GPA because it will benefit you when transferring to a 4 year school!

Best choice before transferring to a 4 year school. Their dual placement program with 4 year institutions is awesome! You will save alot of money by going this route. Instead of paying $1000-$2000 a class you'll pay about $300. (not including books)
Tips for prospective students
Apply for your classes early. If the enrollment isn't enough, they will cancel a class, so don't wait until the last minute to pick your classes. You could be the difference between a class going and being canceled!

Am learning a lot
I have learned a lot being at Waubonsee. One major thing that I am glad I went to Waubonsee is that from taking introduction classes, I changed my major and did a total 360. Most of the teachers are helpful and are more than willing to answer any questions.
Am enjoying being here
I really like it here. There is plenty of different activities so that everyone can be involved in different ways.
Bang for the buck
Tuition isn't too bad especially it being a community college. It is reasonable and helps to save money before going away to college.
Tips for prospective students
Make sure to schedule classes early. Also, make sure you pay close attention to which hall each class is in. It isn't always the smartest thing to have to walk completely across campus.
Great for these types of students
Great for any one whether you are going to get gen.-eds out of the way or you have no clue what you want to study. It helps to take different intro classes to help figure things out and what you like to do.
