Sandburg Sports

The mission of Carl Sandburg College is comprehensive in scope and the College is committed to the development of each individual to his/her fullest potential. To that end, the College recognizes the many positive benefits a student earns by participating in athletics, including the following:

  • Cooperation and camaraderie — teamwork
  • Self-discipline and the benefits of hard work on a continuous basis
  • Dealing with adversity or success in a healthy manner
  • Collective goal setting
  • Developing positive attitudes and enhancing self-esteem without sacrificing humility

A participant in an athletic program at Sandburg is, by definition, a student — a person whose objective is to develop intellectual skills to the maximum extent, a person who will use the educational experience at Sandburg as a foundation for his/her life-long vocation. It is, therefore, expected that a Sandburg athlete will make a total personal commitment to academic achievement and will aggressively pursue excellence in the classroom with the same energy and dedication as that demonstrated in the arena of competitive athletics.
We want you to say, "I'm proud to be a Charger and I am pleased to be attending Carl Sandburg College."
