Experiencing Our Campus

Choosing a college that is the right "fit" for you is a big decision. One of the best ways to truly know what a college has to offer is to visit the campus and take a good look around. The Welcome Center schedules visits on an individual basis at the student's convenience. We are available between 8:00am - 4:00pm, Monday through Friday.

Please note there are no scheduled classes on Fridays. Ideally, we want each prospective student to get the full experience during our most active days and times so we highly encourage Monday - Thursday visits. This allows for you to have the best experience possible! At this time we are not available for weekend campus visits and tours. 

*Carl Sandburg College recognizes national holidays, and we are not available for campus visits on these days including: MLK Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and the Friday after Thanksgiving. Additionally, we are closed each year from Dec. 24 - Jan. 2.
