I was well-prepared here, supported by staff and faculty - whenever I needed detailed feedback or guidance, they were immediately available and eager to help. If you want to start a project, do research, get internships, or help out in the community, you have to have some initiative but it pays off. I got a really cool internship through the career services and completed a fulfilling work-study.

I took classes and electives in several departments outside my major, including education, communication and psychology, and I gained a lot of practical knowledge. Professors are intelligent, funny, and made learning feel less like work. Definitely recommend the senior capstone project required by several majors because it gives you the research and writing skills needed to do a master's thesis project closely supervised by faculty.

Student body is quiet but has a lot of neat interests and passions. The college could do more to bring that out, but there's a lot of potential.
Review Lake Erie College
I want on a visit with my school. The tour was nice! I oved how the tour guide actually explained everything on the visit. We saw almost everything. I fell in love with the café. The food was sooo GOOD. If I had to guess, I gained about 4 pounds that day. The dorms were a nice and were well spaced. I enjoy looking that gyms as well. Overall the visit was nice, I wouldn't mind visiting again.
Most of the dorms are very old and unappealing. Last year, the heater in my room didn't work and i reported it, but no one ever came to fix it, so i froze all winter. Also, it's entirely too expensive to attend if your parents aren't "made of money" or you're an athlete. Food it terrible and makes everyone sick!
