Lake Area Technical Institute Reviews
Lake area tech is a very young campus, I was recently looking into Mitchell tech and the difference between the two is amazing! To me Lake Area is all about getting you into the right careeer for you and making sure you succeed! And they tell you it’s okay to chbsvge your mind, where Mitchell tech wants you to find your “carreer” and stay to it whether you like it or not. The staff at lake area is super friendly and always ready to help
At Lake Area Tech, the teachers, instructors, and administrators truly want the best for you and your future. The class sizes are small which makes the learning experience more personal. There are many opportunities to be a part of many different activities!
Lake Area is ranked the number one two year school in the nation. I would recommend anyone to continue education here. The variety of programs are endless and the facility is very impressive and care about your education greatly. In my opinion being at a two year school you get the attention you need and want, you are very hands on with your teachers and fellow classmates.
