I am actually a transfer student from a much larger university. The atmosphere at Lake Area Technical Institute is completely different. The teachers care about each and every student. The school wants every student to succeed in life, it is such a good feeling to have such amazing people push you and want you to succeed during a difficult time of becoming an adult and pursuing a degree.
Review Lake Area Technical Institute
The instructors are the best. They care about each and everyone of their students. If a student is falling behind, quiet, or confused they will talk with them personally and help them through any problems. The courses are set up in a way that you learn, but have a great time doing so. Time flies!
Lake Area Technical Institute is your home away from home. It sounds cliche, but holds true. You get to actually know your professors while you are getting a university experience, at a small, community college. You get what you pay for, and I see that as a professional and real-life experience. I am so grateful for the opportunities that I have been given in the time that I have been here.
