College of Lake County Reviews
The College of Lake County is an excellent college to attend. They have a variety of classes to choose from and provide many different degree types. If you are struggling with any of your classes, the school has a tutoring center full of tutors who can assist you on an abundance of topics. Topics such as, Biology, Calculus, English, Economics, Spanish and many more! The staff members throughout the school will make your experiences a very pleasant one. They are extremely friendly and will answer any questions you have. Every professor that I have had in that school was very passionate about their job. They teach with eagerness and produce a motivational and inspirational environment in their classrooms. There are also many clubs to join. Such as Latino alliance, environmental, math, men of vision and many more. You will never feel "left out" or "alone" at the College of Lake County because the college is immensely diverse. There are many people with different ethnicities. Nice school!
I really enjoy the professors at College of Lake County. There are all extremely helpful and caring to many of their students. They encourage you by providing a lot of resources that will help myself improve my grade, etc. They do not want their students to set up for failure, but for success. Although they are encouraging, you do have to take initation with your own education by staying on task and visiting office hours because they are always willing to help you be successful! If office hours do not work, CLC offers their own CLC tutoring center to give you more time options that can work around your own schedule!
I have gone to CLC for 3 semesters, and every semester I feel more at home and welcomed by the community. The professors are amazing, they truly care about you and your studies. There are so many clubs for a variety of different interests, and if you don’t find something that suits you, you can start your own! I’d say the campus food is good, and my favorite part is having a Starbucks on campus. The library is pretty nice, and it’s a wonderful place to study! This college is one of very few community colleges that has cadaver labs, so if you’re into that it’s awesome! Overall I’ve had a wonderful time here and I’m super thankful for everything they’ve done for me!
