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.
Review College of Lake County
I just completed my Associates in Science degree with CLC this past December of 2016. Overall, the community college was a great way to achieve my degree while working full time. The class schedules were 9/10 times accommodating to ones work schedule. There was rarely a bad teacher, and many of the teachers understand that the general education classes are just that, and they do their best to make curriculum easy for students just passing through.
There was only ever one issue I dealt with at the school and that was going to the Financial Aid/Admissions office. The secretaries there were always extremely rude and unfriendly. Granted, they probably had to deal with their fair amount of rude patrons; they are in a customer service position and should show kindness and patience to the already frustrated students coming in for help.
There were times I took online classes at the school. Do not take math online. Anything else, go for it.
The school is filled with amazing teachers that will help you get wherever you're headed with your career. The nursing program is tough, but many of the teachers have vast experience and knowledge in the field and teach you a lot. There are many resources available to students at CLC. The only bad thing about this school is their Financial Aid office. You will hear horror stories upon horror stories of students battling to get their refunds for a whole semester after the "aided" semester is finished. The office itself just makes you run in circles. If you can get past the financial aid, CLC is a top notch community college. I would strongly recommend it!
