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 am currently attending College of Lake County and my experience has been spectacular. Practically everything is a learning experience. You earn a good education. Every individual at CLC benefits your experience. Also, the assignments are challenging but interesting, and if one works hard enough, you will earn a great grade. Putting in effort and getting involved have been significant to any college experience, no matter what college one is attending! The staff, professors, and students people are kind and are great persons to be around. Overall, CLC is a great college that seems to operate like the "adult world," meaning it'll do things such as teach you responsibility. I'd recommend this place to anyone.
