Waubonsee Student Testimonials
“Waubonsee helped me because I always knew I wanted to attend college, but I never knew how I would be able to afford it.
I’ve had to go through a lot of rough patches to be here, but I’m so thankful that I came back to Waubonsee to finish what I started. I’ve received so many resources from Waubonsee.”
“If you’re on the fence about whether you should return to school in 2023, I want you to know that we’re all here rooting for you. The supportive staff at Waubonsee are here to help you every step of the way.”
“I’m proud to be a first-generation Latina graduate of Waubonsee, but it didn’t come easy.
I didn’t let my health challenges, my academic struggles, my family responsibilities, or even paying for college stop me. I took a few years off and then I came back to Waubonsee and finished. You should too!”
“I came to Waubonsee straight out of high school. Then, I became a young mom. After I had my daughter, I gave up on my dream.
I never thought higher education was an option for me. After 11 years, I am back at Waubonsee and I’m finishing my degree. I have hope. I have more options for work and I believe in myself. You can too!”
“Waubonsee is the best decision ever. It saved me so much money when I faced a life emergency … After a really bad car accident, I had to take a break from my studies and focus on my recovery. I questioned if I should come back to continue my studies. I’m so glad I came back and finished what I started. Since graduating from Waubonsee, I was able to transfer to Columbia University and earn a degree in a field I love - marketing and communications.”
