Julyssa Saez was a three-sport athlete while attending South Suburban College. She is now working toward her bachelor’s degree in exercise science from Calumet College of St. Joseph. Julyssa is one of many SSC athletes who have gone on to receive an athletic scholarship at a four-year school.

She values the education she received at SSC because it was her first experience in a college environment.

“SSC pushed me to where I needed to be. They kept me on track with my classes in order for me to move on past the junior college. The environment at the school was very open and people got along so well. If it was a four year college, I definitely would have stayed.”
