Central Lakes College - Brainerd Reviews
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!
I like the professors and the way they care about their students. They always make sure students have what they need to be successful in their field of study. All of my professors have taken time out of their day to consult with students about classwork, or set up a success plan for them. They are kind and compassionate, and they know what they are talking about. If you ask questions, they do not make you feel dumb, they just do their best to help answer what you have asked. Helpful teachers are always a plus when looking at schools to attend.
For a two year college, I think CLC is a great place for anyone who wants to start their college experience off on the right foot. They offer a good, affordable education, and I loved most of my teachers this past semester. Only thing I wish they had was Veterinary Technician program for those looking to go into that field such as myself. But, I have been able to start the completion of my generals without any problems.
