Named for a famed Midwestern poet and biographer, two-year adult-learning school Carl Sandburg College is found in Galesburg, Illinois. It offers its 3,300 students A.A. and A.S. degree programs in fields as diverse as creative writing, exercise science and law enforcement, as well as professional certificate programs in over 40 distinct disciplines. CSC promotes well-roundedness and the teamwork-oriented benefits of its 11 athletic programs, many of which are headquartered in its state-of-the-art, on-campus Fitness Center. Its generous Presidential Scholarship program even pays a “full ride” worth of tuition and fees for the first 20 applicants each year to register a qualifying ACT score and high school GPA! CSC’s success stories speak for themselves, especially that of Dr. Judy Glaser, assistant professor at Georgia Regents University College of Nursing and recipient of the CSC’s 2015 Distinguished Alumnus Award: “I walked in and I thought, this is where I’m supposed to be,” Glaser said. “Without [Carl Sandburg], where would I have gone?” A good question, indeed.
