College of Lake County Reviews
At the College of Lake County I have experienced nothing but good things. My classes have all been under the size of 30 students, which makes for more one on one time with professors and therefore better understanding of the material. The campus is organized with signs everywhere for help with direction. It is not very big as well which makes going from class to class not such a hassle. There are constantly fairs and educational opportunities to expand your knowledge on your specific interests. Much construction has been done in the past year to improve the student services department, lounge areas, and the food options available. It is a great place to make big things happen, all while saving a few dollars in the process!
As a theater major, I’ve found that my professors are kind, inclusive, and become like a family through the program. As theater students are constantly on campus together, we quickly become close-knit, and that closeness can include the teachers. My professors are one of my favorite things about this school. I also find their inclusivity of LGBT+ students is fantasctic, and while faculty and staff may benefit from yearly sensitivity training, in general it is extremely safe and welcoming to the LGBT+ community. The only real problems I’ve had at the school are administrative or beurocratical in nature, but otherwise I really love this school, especially it’s theater department.
I only went there from Spring 2016 to Fall 2016, but all the professors I had there were excellent. When I first oriented there as a freshman, the counselors and the financial aid offices were both very helpful in aiding me with my time there. It was easy to get around even during construction, and the campus police were also helpful if you got lost. The people there are nice, and I made a few friends in my classes too. Unfortunately I had to move in 2017 to California, but overall CLC I would go back to again if I ever needed to get classes done efficiently and quickly. The only downside is the classes cost a lot, I was only able to take two at a time and paid in installments because it already cost like $700-$800 and I worked part time making minimum wage.
