Central Lakes College - Brainerd Reviews
My experience at Central Lakes College has been an excellent one! The instructors are good at what they do and want to support their students and see them succeed. I have loved getting more involved in the community and discovering others who share my interests. Overall I love attending CLC and would highly recommend it to anyone seeking one of their degree programs!
If you want to go to a school where the teachers, advisers and the Dean care about the students then CLC is the place. I'm pretty sure that out of all the schools in Minnesota this is the most affordable. There are couches and spaces made specifically for the students to relax, study or just hangout with friends. They even have a space for snacks and meals that are free for students. If you have trouble in classes they have tutors in the library and no you don't have to pay for it. I enjoyed my time at CLC. I made friends with teachers, janitors, and non traditional students alike.
CLC is an excellent school to begin a Liberal Arts degree! The faulty and programs offer substantial help to walk their students through the application and financial aid process. They also offer many free programs to make college life easier and more affordable. Overall, it is a great school to get students started on their education and to help them reach their next level!
