In the fall of 2014, Sauk Valley Community College began a video project we hope will reach our current and future students, and the Sauk Valley Community in a way we have never tried before.

Past and current students were interviewed about what brought them to Sauk, their experiences while at the College and how Sauk contributed to their own particular success.

Sauk faculty and staff were also interviewed about the many ways Sauk helps students, not only understand their goals, but achieve them.

Many hours of footage were crafted into special stories from our students, and informative communications from faculty and staff about Sauk’s programs and people. Whatever direction these special stories take, they all have one thing in common…Sauk Success.

Each student took their own unique path to discover their Sauk Success. We firmly believe that our Sauk Success project will help you take the steps you need to find your own path, your own Sauk Success.

We greatly appreciate the many hours our students, alumni, faculty and staff committed to making this such an amazing experience. The spots currently available are not the end of this project. There is a lot of great material not shown here that we anticipate showcasing in the months ahead.

We invite you to explore the SVCC video wall and learn more about Sauk’s amazing students, programs, and opportunities.
